Recurrence relations of special functions and group representations

G.F. Torres del Castillo

Abstract


It is shown that the recurrence relations satisfied by several special functions can be related to representations of Lie algebras of dimension three or four. It is also shown that in some cases these recurrence relations can be related to the isometries of constant-curvature two-dimensional manifolds.
