Subject: International Workshop
on Orthogonal Polynomials in Mathematical
in Honour of André Ronveaux: Madrid, June 24-26, 1996
A total of 74 participants engaged in friendly discussions and a pleasant
atmosphere accompanied the meeting. Thirteen Spanish institutions were
represented by 53 people and another thirteen foreign institution by the
rest. Each of the five invited speakers gave two one-hour lectures:
The sessions were completed by thirteen half-hour communications. These
short communications were delivered by:
(Instituto de Investigaciones en Matemáticas Aplicadas y en
Sistemas. Univ. Nacional Autónoma de México. Cuernavaca.
Difference Equations and Some of their Solutions. Ramanujan-type
for Classical q-Polynomials.
Jesus S. Dehesa:
(Departamento de Física Moderna. Univ. de Granada, Spain.)
Information Theory, Quantum Entropy and Orthogonal Polynomials.
Yuri F. Smirnov:
(Instituto de Física, Univ. Nacional Autónoma de
Orthogonal polynomials of a Discrete Variable
and Quantum Algebras SU_q(2) and SU_q(1,1). Hidden sl(2)

Addition Formulas for
q-Special Functions. Hecke algebras and q-Krawtchouk polynomials.

All speakers were kindly invited to submit written versions of their talks
for the proceedings of the meeting which will be published in the near
future. The Workshop was dedicated in honour of Prof. André
the occassion of his retirement from the University and his fruitful
