Special functions, one of the oldest branches of real and complex analysis, have been exploited by Issac Newton, Gottfried Leibniz, Leonhard Euler, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Bernhard Riemann, and among many other great mathematicians, physicists, astronomers, scientists, and engineers. In the recent past, using many diverse methods, new special functions and orthogonal polynomials have been introduced and explored, new organizational structures have been discovered, and new results have been obtained for centuries-old special functions. In this Special Issue, we invite and welcome review, expository, and original research articles dealing with recent advances on the topics of special functions and orthogonal polynomials of one, as well as several, variables.

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 papers will be 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. Symmetry 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 1400 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.
