Mi, 16:00-17:30 Uhr, HA 105

The lecture will be in English.

In many different areas of mathematics one meets special function.

For example: gamma function, (q-)binomial coefficients, exp/log-

and sin/cos-integrals, Airy and Bessel functions, (q-)hypergeometric

series, or orthogonal polynomials. The lecture discusses elementary

properties of such functions. A particular emphasis is put on

computer algebra algebra algorithms for proving identities.

Requirements: Active knowledge from "Analytische Kombinatorik".

Note: The contents of this part of the lecture is independent from

that of SPECIAL FUNCTIONS I (2008W)!
