Abstract

Limit transitions will be derived between the five parameter family of Askey-Wilson polynomials, the four parameter family of big $q$-Jacobi polynomials and the three parameter family of little $q$-Jacobi polynomials in $n$ variables associated with root system $\BC$. These limit transitions generalize the known hierarchy structure between these families in the one variable case. Furthermore it will be proved that these three families are $q$-analogues of the three parameter family of $\BC$ type Jacobi polynomials in $n$ variables. The limit transitions will be derived by taking limits of $q$-difference operators which have these polynomials as eigenfunctions.
