A new approach to ratio asymptotics for orthogonal polynomials

  title={A new approach to ratio asymptotics for orthogonal polynomials},
  author={Brian Simanek},
We use a non-linear characterization of orthonormal polynomials due to Saff in order to prove an equivalence of norm asymptotics and strong asymptotics for polynomials. Several applications of this equivalence are also discussed. One of our main results is that for regular measures on the closed unit disk - including, but not limited to the unit circle - or the interval [-2,2], one has ratio asymptotics along a sequence of asymptotic density 1.

Ratio Asymptotics, Hessenberg Matrices, and Weak Asymptotic Measures
We discuss the relationship between ratio asymptotics for general orthogonal polynomials and the asymptotics of the associated Bergman shift operator. More specifically, we consider the case in which
Relative Asymptotics of Orthogonal Polynomials for Perturbed Measures
In the context of orthogonal polynomials in the plane we introduce the notion of a polynomially small (PS) perturbation of a measure. In such a case we establish relative asymptotic results for the

The Bergman Shift Operator on Polynomial Lemniscates
We investigate the relationship between the Bergman shift operator and the support of the corresponding measure. We pay special attention to the situation when the measure of orthogonality is

Orthogonal Polynomials for Area-Type Measures and Image Recovery
It is demonstrated that the asymptotic properties of the Bergman polynomials for G, the finite union of disjoint and bounded Jordan domains in the complex plane, are determined by the boundary of G.


Using a nonlinear integral characterization of orthogonal polynomials in the complex plane, we provide a simple method for deducing a weak form of relative asymptotics exterior to the convex hull of
