Topic:  Umbral calculus, a method for symbolic computation
Christophe Vignat - Tulane University

Abstract:  Umbral calculus is a computation method that represents a sequence of numbers or functions as a sequence of moments. It allows a significant simplification in the computation of some sequences, such as those associated with orthogonal polynomials.

This talk will introduce umbral calculus through some examples such as Hermite or Gegenbauer polynomials, and will show some applications.
