Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a collection of papers dedicated to Mizan Rahman, who is best known in the mathematical community for co-authoring with George Gasper the modern classic Basic Hypergeometric Series … . There is also a valuable survey of Rahman’s work by the editors … . many world leaders in special functions have contributed, and the overall quality is very high. Anyone working in q-series should own this collection. It may also be of interest to people in other areas within or related to special functions." (Warren Johnson, MathDL, May, 2005)
