Classical orthogonal polynomials as moments
We show that the Meixner, Pollaczek, Meixner-Pollaczek, the continuous $q$-ultraspherical polynomials and Al-Salam-Chihara polynomials, in certain normalization, are moments of probability measures. We use this fact to derive bilinear and multilinear generating functions for some of these polynomials. We also comment on the corresponding formulas for the Charlier, Hermite and Laguerre polynomials.

Keywords:Classical orthogonal polynomials, \ACP, continuous, $q$-ultraspherical polynomials, generating functions, multilinear, generating functions, transformation formulas, umbral calculus

Limit transitions for BC type multivariable orthogonal polynomials
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.

Orthogonal Polynomials for a Family of Product Weight Functions on the Spheres
Based on the theory of spherical harmonics for measures invariant under a finite reflection group developed by Dunkl recently, we study orthogonal polynomials with respect to the weight functions $|x_1|^{\alpha_1}\cdots |x_d|^{\alpha_d}$ on the unit sphere $S^{d-1}$ in $\RR^d$. The results include explicit formulae for orthonormal polynomials, reproducing and Poisson kernel, as well as intertwining operator.

Keywords:Orthogonal polynomials in several variables, sphere, h-harmonics
