## Orthogonal Basic Hypergeometric Laurent Polynomials    [PDF]

Mourad E. H. Ismail, Dennis Stanton
The Askey-Wilson polynomials are orthogonal polynomials in $x = \cos \theta$, which are given as a terminating $_4\phi_3$ basic hypergeometric series. The non-symmetric Askey-Wilson polynomials are Laurent polynomials in $z=e^{i\theta}$, which are given as a sum of two terminating $_4\phi_3$'s. They satisfy a biorthogonality relation. In this paper new orthogonality relations for single $_4\phi_3$'s which are Laurent polynomials in $z$ are given, which imply the non-symmetric Askey-Wilson biorthogonality. These results include discrete orthogonality relations. They can be considered as a classical analytic study of the results for non-symmetric Askey-Wilson polynomials which were previously obtained by affine Hecke algebra techniques.
