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)!
