###### LinearOperators in Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces
Square matices can be seen as linear operators because $\mathbf{A}(\alpha\mathbf{a}+\beta\mathbf{b})=\alpha\mathbf{A}\mathbf{a}+\beta% \mathbf{A}\mathbf{b}$ for all $\alpha,\beta\in\mathbb{C}$ and $\mathbf{a},\mathbf{b}\in\mathbf{E}_{n}$, the space of all $n$-dimensional vectors. …

• ##### 5: Errata
This especially included updated information on matrix analysis, measure theory, spectral analysis, and a new section on linear second order differential operators and eigenfunction expansions. … The specific updates to Chapter 1 include the addition of an entirely new subsection §1.18 entitled “Linear Second Order Differential Operators and Eigenfunction Expansions” which is a survey of the formal spectral analysis of second order differential operators. The spectral theory of these operators, based on Sturm-Liouville and Liouville normal forms, distribution theory, is now discussed more completely, including linear algebra, matrices, matrices as linear operators, orthonormal expansions, Stieltjes integrals/measures, generating functions. …

##### 7: 2.9 Difference Equations
Many special functions that depend on parameters satisfy a three-term linear recurrence relation …or equivalently the second-order homogeneous linear difference equation …in which $\Delta$ is the forward difference operator3.6(i)). … This situation is analogous to second-order homogeneous linear differential equations with an irregular singularity of rank 1 at infinity (§2.7(ii)). … For an introduction to, and references for, the general asymptotic theory of linear difference equations of arbitrary order, see Wimp (1984, Appendix B). …
##### 8: 18.38 Mathematical Applications
The Dunkl type operator is a $q$-difference-reflection operator acting on Laurent polynomials and its eigenfunctions, the nonsymmetric Askey–Wilson polynomials, are linear combinations of the symmetric Laurent polynomial $R_{n}(z;a,b,c,d\,|\,q)$ and the ‘anti-symmetric’ Laurent polynomial $z^{-1}(1-az)(1-bz)R_{n-1}(z;qa,qb,c,d\,|\,q)$, where $R_{n}(z)$ is given in (18.28.1_5). …
##### 9: 18.19 Hahn Class: Definitions
• 1.

Hahn class (or linear lattice class). These are OP’s $p_{n}(x)$ where the role of $\frac{\mathrm{d}}{\mathrm{d}x}$ is played by $\Delta_{x}$ or $\nabla_{x}$ or $\delta_{x}$ (see §18.1(i) for the definition of these operators). The Hahn class consists of four discrete and two continuous families.

• ##### 10: William P. Reinhardt
He has recently carried out research on non-linear dynamics of Bose–Einstein condensates that served to motivate his interest in elliptic functions. Older work on the scattering theory of the atomic Coulomb problem led to the discovery of new classes of orthogonal polynomials relating to the spectral theory of Schrödinger operators, and new uses of old ones: this work was strongly motivated by his original ownership of a 1964 hard copy printing of the original AMS 55 NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions. …
