It is shown that an appropriate combination of methods, relevant to generalized operational calculus and to special functions, can be a very useful tool to treat a large body of problems both in physics and mathematics. We discuss operational methods associated with multivariable Hermite, Laguerre, Legendre, and other polynomials to derive a wealth of identities useful in quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, etc., or to derive new identities between special functions as, e.g., Mehler- or mixed-type generating functions. © 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
