Participate in the CIMPA-ICTP online course of Professor Salameh Sedaghat!

Join Salameh Sedaghat's course "Analytical Properties and Applications of Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions" from April 3 to 6, 2023.  

Salameh Sedaghat is an assistant professor of mathematics at Buein Zahra Technical University, Iran.

The course will be given in English on zoom.

This is a recurrent meeting, so please register only once for all 4 sessions:…

The course will take place on the following days (Paris time zone):

  • Monday 3 April: 14:00 - 16:00 
  • Tuesday 4 April: 14:00 - 16:00
  • Wednesday 5 April: 14:00 - 16:00
  • Thursday 6 April: 14:00 - 16:00


This course is dedicated to introducing the properties and application of orthogonal polynomials and special functions. At first, we present some families of hypergeometric orthogonal polynomials belonging to the Askey scheme. We list the most important properties of the polynomials such as a representation as hypergeometric function, recurrence relations, orthogonality relations, the second- order differential equation, generating functions, the Laplace transform and a Rodrigues-type formula. Next, we derive the properties of the Eta functions. To show the advantages of the Eta functions in the computational method, we develop a new numerical method to solve the differential equations based on the Eta functions. We introduce the operational matrices of integration and derivative for the Eta functions to develop the new numerical method. Finally, we derive the error bounds of the numerical method and demonstrate the precision of the new numerical technique by solving some numerical tests.

Please note that the CIMPA/ICTP courses will be recorded and broadcasted on our Youtube channel "CIMPA Math" and on

Programme of other courses.

CIMPA does not provide certificates of attendance for online courses.

This course will be filmed at CIMPA (Nice, France).
