By Eli Levin, Doron S. Lubinsky (auth.)

The research of orthogonal polynomials linked to common weights was once a huge subject in classical research within the 20th century, and certainly will keep growing in value within the future.
In this monograph, the authors examine orthogonal polynomials for exponential weights outlined on a finite or limitless period. The period may still comprise zero, yet needn't be symmetric approximately zero; likewise the load needn't be even. The authors identify bounds and asymptotics for orthonormal and extremal polynomials, and their linked Christoffel features. They deduce bounds on zeros of extremal and orthogonal polynomials, and in addition identify Markov- Bernstein and Nikolskii inequalities.
The authors have collaborated actively because 1982 on quite a few themes, and feature released many joint papers, in addition to a Memoir of the yankee Mathematical Society. The latter offers with a different case of the weights handled during this ebook. in lots of methods, this booklet is the end result of 18 years of joint paintings on orthogonal polynomials, drawing thought from the works of many researchers within the very lively box of orthogonal polynomials.
