Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to present novel results for special functions arising in various areas of contemporary mathematics, including mathematical physics, theory of ODE and PDE, number theory, discrete mathematics, harmonic analysis, theory of integral transforms, Lie groups and Lie algebras representation theory, q-calculus, fractional calculus, etc. We expect that this Special Issue will address both classical special functions and their numerous extensions, including q-analogues, fractional analogues, and hyper (multi-index) analogues.

We look forward to receiving your contributions including new properties, integrals, series and recurrent relations, formulas for asymptotic behavior and values of integral operators, new results for analytic continuations, etc. We invite authors to present new theorems describing connections between special functions of mathematical physics and their q-analogues with classical Lie groups and algebras and quantum groups and Hopf algebras, respectively.

We are also interested in various applications of special functions, since “A function is a special function if it occurs often enough so that it gets a name” (Richard Askey). 

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Symmetry.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

In this paper, we explore a study focused on a two-variable extension of matrix Bessel polynomials. We initiate the discussion by introducing the matrix Bessel polynomials involving two variables and derive specific differential formulas and recurrence relations associated with them. Additionally, we present a segment detailing integral formulas for the extended matrix Bessel polynomials. Lastly, we introduce the Laplace–Carson transform for the two-variable matrix Bessel polynomial analogue. Full article

Abstract
By computing definite integrals, we shall examine binomial series of convergence rate ±1/2 and weighted by harmonic-like numbers. Several closed formulae in terms of the Riemann and Hurwitz zeta functions as well as logarithm and polylogarithm functions will be established, [...] Read more.
By computing definite integrals, we shall examine binomial series of convergence rate ±1/2 and weighted by harmonic-like numbers. Several closed formulae in terms of the Riemann and Hurwitz zeta functions as well as logarithm and polylogarithm functions will be established, including a conjectured one made recently by Z.-W.

Recently, Appell-type polynomials have been investigated and applied in several ways. In this paper, we consider a new extension of Appell-type Changhee polynomials. We introduce two-variable generalized Appell-type λ-Changhee polynomials (2VGATλCHP). The generating function, series representations, and summation identities related to these polynomials are explored. Further, certain symmetry identities involving two-variable generalized Appell-type λ-Changhee polynomials are established. Finally, Mathematica was used to examine the zero distributions of two-variable truncated-exponential Appell-type Changhee polynomials. Full article

The Gould–Hopper–Laguerre–Sheffer matrix polynomials were initially studied using operational methods, but in this paper, we investigate them using matrix techniques. By leveraging properties of Pascal functionals and Wronskian matrices, we derive several identities for these polynomials, including recurrence relations. It is highlighted that these identities, acquired via matrix techniques, are distinct from the ones obtained when using operational methods. Full article
