The analysis of orthogonal polynomials associated with general weights was a major theme in classical analysis in the twentieth century and undoubtedly will continue to grow in importance in the future. In this monograph, the authors investigate orthogonal polynomials for exponential weights defined on a finite or infinite interval. The interval should contain 0, but need not be symmetric about 0 ; likewise, the weight need not be even. The authors establish bounds and asymptotics for orthonormal and extremal polynomials, and their associated Christoffel functions. They deduce bounds on zeros of extremal and orthogonal polynomials, and also establish Markov-Bernstein and Nikolskii inequalities. The book will be of interest to researchers in approximation theory, harmonic analysis, numerical analysis, potential theory, and all those that apply orthogonal polynomials.
