Generating Some Symmetric Semiclassical Orthogonal Polynomials
We show that if $v$ is a regular semiclassical form
(linear functional), then the symmetric form $u$ defined by the
relation
$x^{2}\sigma u = \lambda v$,
where $(\sigma f)(x)=f(x^{2})$ and the odd
moments of $u$ are $0$, is also
regular and semiclassical form for every
complex $\lambda $ except for a discrete set of numbers depending
on $v$. We give explicitly the threeterm recurrence relation
and the
structure relation coefficients of the orthogonal polynomials
sequence associated with $u$ and the class of the form $u$ knowing
that of $v$. We conclude with an illustrative example.

Transformation Formulas for Bilinear Sums of Basic Hypergeometric Series
A master formula of transformation formulas for bilinear sums
of basic hypergeometric series
is proposed.
It is obtained from the author's previous results on
a transformation formula for Milne's multivariate generalization
of basic hypergeometric
series of type $A$ with different dimensions and it can be considered
as a
generalization of the WhippleSears transformation formula for
terminating balanced ${}_4 \phi_3$
series.
As an application of the master formula, the one variable cases
of some transformation formulas
for bilinear sums of basic hypergeometric series are given as
examples.
The bilinear transformation formulas seem to be new in the literature,
even in one variable case.

A Generalised KummerType Transformation for the ${}_pF_p(x)$ Hypergeometric Function
In a recent paper, Miller derived a Kummertype
transformation for the generalised hypergeometric function ${}_pF_p(x)$ when pairs of
parameters differ by unity, by means of a reduction
formula for a certain KampÃ© de FÃ©riet function. An alternative and simpler derivation of this
transformation is obtained here by application of the wellknown Kummer transformation for the
confluent hypergeometric function corresponding to $p=1$.

Summation of Series over Bourget Functions
In this paper we derive formulas for summation of series involving
J.~Bourget's generalization of Bessel functions of integer order, as
well as the analogous generalizations by H.~M.~Srivastava. These series are
expressed in terms of the Riemann $\z$ function and Dirichlet
functions $\eta$, $\la$, $\b$, and can be brought into closed form in
certain cases, which means that the infinite series are represented
by finite sums.

Inverse Laplace Transforms Encountered in Hyperbolic Problems of NonStationary FluidStructure Interaction
The paper offers a study of the inverse Laplace
transforms of the functions $I_n(rs)\{sI_n^{'}(s)\}^{1}$ where
$I_n$ is the modified Bessel function of the first kind and $r$ is
a parameter. The present study is a continuation of the author's
previous work %[\textit{Canadian Mathematical Bulletin} 45]
on the
singular behavior of the special case of the functions in
question, $r$=1. The general case of $r \in [0,1]$ is addressed,
and it is shown that the inverse Laplace transforms for such $r$
exhibit significantly more complex behavior than their
predecessors, even though they still only have two different types
of points of discontinuity: singularities and finite
discontinuities. The functions studied originate from
nonstationary fluidstructure interaction, and as such are of
interest to researchers working in the area.

Second Order Mock Theta Functions
In his last letter to Hardy, Ramanujan
defined 17 functions $F(q)$, where $q<1$. He called them mock theta
functions, because as $q$ radially approaches any point $e^{2\pi ir}$
($r$ rational), there is a theta function $F_r(q)$ with $F(q)F_r(q)=O(1)$.
In this paper we establish the relationship between two families of mock
theta functions.

Uniform Estimates of Ultraspherical Polynomials of Large Order
In this paper we prove the sharp inequality
$$ P_n^{(s)}(x)\leq
P_n^{(s)}(1)\bigl(x^n +\frac{n1}{2 s+1}(1x^n)\bigr),$$
where
$P_n^{(s)}(x)$ is the classical ultraspherical polynomial of
degree $n$ and order $s\ge n\frac{1+\sqrt 5}{4}$. This inequality
can be refined in $[0,z_n^s]$ and $[z_n^s,1]$, where $z_n^s$
denotes the largest zero of $P_n^{(s)}(x)$.

BakerType Estimates for Linear Forms in the Values of $q$Series
We obtain lower estimates for the absolute values
of linear forms of the values of generalized Heine
series at nonzero points of an imaginary quadratic field~$\II$,
in particular of the values of $q$exponential function.
These estimates depend on the individual coefficients,
not only on the maximum of their absolute values.
The proof uses a variant of classical Siegel's method
applied to a system of functional Poincar\'etype equations
and the connection between the solutions of these functional
equations and the generalized Heine series.

Subalgebras of $\gc_N$ and Jacobi Polynomials
We classify the subalgebras of the general Lie conformal algebra
$\gc_N$ that act irreducibly on $\mathbb{C} [\partial]^N$ and that
are normalized by the sl$_2$part of a Virasoro element. The
problem turns out to be closely related to classical Jacobi
polynomials $P_n^{(\sigma,\sigma)}$, $\sigma \in \mathbb{C}$. The
connection goes both wayswe use in our classification some
classical properties of Jacobi polynomials, and we derive from the
theory of conformal algebras some apparently new properties of
Jacobi polynomials.

Spectral Transformations of the Laurent Biorthogonal Polynomials, II. Pastro Polynomials
We continue to study the simplest closure conditions for chains of
spectral transformations of the Laurent biorthogonal polynomials
($\LBP$). It is shown that the 11periodic $q$closure condition
leads to the $\LBP$ introduced by Pastro. We introduce classes of
semiclassical and LaguerreHahn $\LBP$ associated to generic closure
conditions of the chain of spectral transformations.

Harmonic Polynomials Associated With Reflection Groups
We extend Maxwell's representation of harmonic polynomials to $h$harmonics
associated to a reflection invariant weight function $h_k$. Let $\CD_i$,
$1\le i \le d$, be Dunkl's operators associated with a reflection group.
For any homogeneous polynomial $P$ of degree $n$, we prove the
polynomial $\xb^{2 \gamma +d2+2n}P(\CD)\{1/\xb^{2 \gamma +d2}\}$ is
a $h$harmonic polynomial of degree $n$, where $\gamma = \sum k_i$ and
$\CD=(\CD_1,\ldots,\CD_d)$. The construction yields a basis for
$h$harmonics. We also discuss selfadjoint operators acting on the
space of $h$harmonics.

Ramanujan and the Modular $j$Invariant
A new infinite product $t_n$ was introduced by S.~Ramanujan on the
last page of his third notebook. In this paper, we prove
Ramanujan's assertions about $t_n$ by establishing new connections
between the modular $j$invariant and Ramanujan's cubic theory of
elliptic functions to alternative bases. We also show that for
certain integers $n$, $t_n$ generates the Hilbert class field of
$\mathbb{Q} (\sqrt{n})$. This shows that $t_n$ is a new class
invariant according to H.~Weber's definition of class invariants.

Spherical Functions on $\SO_0(p,q)/\SO(p)\times \SO(q)$
An integral formula is derived for the spherical functions on the
symmetric space $G/K=\break
\SO_0(p,q)/\SO(p)\times \SO(q)$. This formula
allows us to state some results about the analytic continuation of
the spherical functions to a tubular neighbourhood of the
subalgebra $\a$ of the abelian part in the decomposition $G=KAK$.
The corresponding result is then obtained for the heat kernel of the
symmetric space $\SO_0(p,q)/\SO (p)\times\SO (q)$ using the Plancherel
formula.
In the Conclusion, we discuss how this analytic continuation can be
a helpful tool to study the growth of the heat kernel.

On the Square of the First Zero of the Bessel Function $J_\nu(z)$
Let $j_{\nu,1}$ be the smallest (first) positive zero of the Bessel
function $J_{\nu}(z)$, $\nu>1$, which becomes zero when $\nu$
approaches $1$. Then $j_{\nu,1}^{2}$ can be continued
analytically to $2<\nu<1$, where it takes on negative values. We
show that $j_{\nu,1}^{2}$ is a convex function of $\nu$ in the
interval $2<\nu\leq 0$, as an addition to an old result
[\'A.~Elbert and A.~Laforgia, SIAM J. Math. Anal. {\bf 15}(1984),
206212], stating this convexity for $\nu>0$. Also the
monotonicity properties of the functions $\frac{j_{\nu,1}^{2}}{4
(\nu+1)}$, $\frac{j_{\nu,1}^{2}}{4(\nu+1)\sqrt{\nu+2}}$ are
determined. Our approach is based on the series expansion of
Bessel function $J_{\nu}(z)$ and it turned out to be effective,
especially when $2<\nu<1$.

Fonctions elliptiques et Ã©quations diffÃ©rentielles ordinaires
In this paper, we detail some results of a previous note concerning
a trigonometric expansion of the Weierstrass elliptic function
$\{\wp(z);\, 2\omega, 2\omega'\}$. In particular, this implies its
classical Fourier expansion. We use a direct integration method of
the ODE $$(E)\left\{\matrix{{d^2u \over dt^2} = P(u, \lambda)\hfill \cr
u(0) = \sigma\hfill \cr {du \over dt}(0) = \tau\hfill \cr}\right.$$
where $P(u)$ is a polynomial of degree $n = 2$ or $3$. In this case,
the bifurcations of $(E)$ depend on one parameter only. Moreover, this
global method seems not to apply to the cases $n > 3$.
