The theory of the incomplete gamma functions, as part of the theory of conuent hypergeometric functions, has received its rst systematic exposition by Tricomi in the early 1950s. His own contributions, as well as further advances made thereafter, are surveyed here with particular emphasis on asymptotic expansions, zeros, inequalities, computational methods, and applications.

We define analogues of higher derivatives for Fqlinear functions over the field of formal Laurent series with coefficients in Fq. This results in a formula for Taylor coefficients of a Fqlinear holomorphic function, a definition of classes of Fqlinear smooth functions which are characterized in terms of coefficients of their FourierCarlitz expansions. A Volkenborntype integration theory for Fqlinear functions is developed; in particular, an integral representation of the Carlitz logarithm is obtained. Key words: Fqlinear function; Carlitz basis; Carlitz logarithm; Volkenborn integral; difference operator; BargmannFock representation.
A new method and its Application to Generalized qBessel Polynomials

Abstract. We make a brief survey of orthogonal polynomials which are not included in the Askey scheme and we discuss some of their qanalogues. We reintroduce a notation of Heine, which leads to a new method for computations and classifications of qspecial functions. As an example of this method, we present Bailey’s 1929 transformation formula for a terminating, balanced, verywellpoised 10φ9 qhypergeometric series in the new notation. This series can occur in the Poisson kernel for the AskeyWilson polynomials. We shall conclude by proving a new operator expression for qBessel polynomials and define new associated generalized qBessel polynomials, which will be used to find qanalogues of equations of Chatterjea and Srivastava.

The paper discusses asymptotic methods for integrals, in particular uniform approximations. We discuss several examples, where we apply the results to Tricomi's \Psi\Gammafunction, in particular we consider an expansion of TricomiCarlitz polynomials in terms of Hermite polynomials. We mention other recent expansions for orthogonal polynomials that do not satisfy a differential equation, and for which methods based on integral representations produce powerful uniform asymptotic expansions. 1991 Mathematics Subject Classification: 41A60, 33B20, 33C10, 33C45, 11B73, 30E15. Keywords and Phrases: uniform asymptotic expansions, Tricomi's \Psi\Gammafunction, Kummer functions, confluent hypergeometric functions, Whittaker functions, Hermite polynomials, TricomiCarlitz polynomials. Note: Work carried out under project MAS2.8 Exploratory research. Extended version of a paper presented at the Conference Tricomi's Ideas and Contemporary Applied Mathematics to celebrate the 100th anniversary o...

In particular, we show a close relation between them as orthonormal bases. Moreover, parallel to Carlitz’s coefficient formula, we give the closed formula f ..."

Two Step Descent In Modular Galois Theory, Theorems Of Burnside And Cayley, And Hilbert's Thirteenth Problem
"... We propound a Descent Principle by which previously constructed equations over GF(q n )(X) may be deformed to have incarnations over GF(q)(X) without changing their Galois groups, where q = p u ? 1 is a power of a prime p and n is a positive integer. Currently this is achieved by starting with ..."

We propound a Descent Principle by which previously constructed equations over GF(q n )(X) may be deformed to have incarnations over GF(q)(X) without changing their Galois groups, where q = p u ? 1 is a power of a prime p and n is a positive integer. Currently this is achieved by starting with a vectorial (= additive) qpolynomial of qdegree m with Galois group GL(m; q) where m is any positive integer and then, under suitable conditions, enlarging its Galois group to GL(m; q n ) by forming its generalized iterate relative to an auxiliary irreducible polynomial of degree n. So, alternatively, we may regard this as an Ascent Principle. Elsewhere we proved this when m is squarefree with GCD(mnu; 2p) = 1 = GCD(m;n). There the proof was based on CT (= the Classification Theorem of Finite Simple Groups) in its incarnation of CPT (= the Classification of Projectively Transitive Permutation Groups, i.e., subgroups of GL acting transitively on nonzero vectors). Here, without ...

Abstract. A Kummer theory of division points over rank one Drinfeld A = Fq[T] modules defined over global function fields was given. The results are in complete analogy with the classical Kummer theory of division points over the multiplicative algebraic group Gm defined over number fields. Let K be a number field and let ¯ K be a fixed algebraic closure of K. For any positive integer n, let µn be the group of nth roots of unity in ¯ K. Let G(n) = Gal(K(µn)/K). For K = Q, G(n) ∼ = (Z/nZ) ∗ , and for any number field K, G(l) ∼ = (Z/lZ) ∗ for almost all prime numbers l.
