A new Picard-type theorem associated with q-special functionsPDE and Applied Math Seminar

Prompted from recent progress in discrete integrable systems,
we shall describe a new form of Picard theorem that is related to
the important Askey-Wilson operator, in particular in q-orthogonal
polynomials and q-special functions. The Jacobi Elliptic functions
are amongst the q-special functions. Although a very general
q-Nevanlinna theory will be discussed, the lecture does not require
much prerequisite apart from the first complex analysis course.
Note that the room is different from our regular room.
