1. Introduction. The general objective of this thesis is to investigate biorthogonal sequences in a Hilbert space, in particular, to extend the notion of classical orthogonal polynomials of Jacobi, Laguerre, Hermite and Bessel to two sets of polynomials in (1)
/p(x)Z^(x^)x^dx = r0 '
^ ;
and x respectively such that for i 0, 1, 2,,., n1

i=n
and (2)
J^p(x)U (x)x^^dx  ('0
for i  0, 1, 2,.., n1 i= n
where p(x) is a nonnegative admissible weight function, I ' is some closed interval in the real line or a closed curve in the complex plane. For k % 1, 2^(x^)= l[j^(x), n=: 0, 1, 2,..., and the above conditions reduce to the orthogonal condition. Although, the notion , of biorthogonal polynomials is known to be discussed as early as 1886 [l), the literature concerned with its properties is quite scarce, [ 4 ],
and consists principally of
andjd].
In [2], A. Erdelyi pointed out that from every Imown orthogonal set of functions or from a biorthogonal set of functions,
a new biorthogonal set»can be formed by
fractional integration by parts.
As an example he
discussed in detail the construction of a new biorthogonal system from the Laguerre functions!
But he did not
investigate general properties of these biorthogonal sets. In [3], L. Spencer and F. Fano, in carrying out calculations involving the penetration of gamma rays through matter,
introduced a pair of biorthogonal polynomial
sets in x and x^.
For the polynomial in x^, they gave
formulas, derived mixed recurrence relations,
and presented
a third order differential equation of the form (3)
LY„r A( x )y ! ' + B{x)Yn"+ C( x )Yjj' = >
where A(x), B(x), C(x) are functions of x independent of n and /\^ is a parameter independent of x. Curiously, the subject of biorthogonal polynomials was not the primary objective of Spencer and Fano's work. They were mainly interested in the expansion of the space distribution of Xrays in a suitable polynomial system. After some extensive numerical computations, they showed ’’good convergence” properties of their methods.
However,
they did not really touch the question of convergence from the analytic point of view, nor did they discuss the property of completeness of these polynomials and the merit of deliberately using non selforthogonal polynomials for the expansion of arbitrary functions. In (4^, S. Preiser showed that, apart from real linear transformation, there is only one third order differential equation of the above type, from which biorthogonal polynomials are derivable.
For each set of the biorthogonal
polynomials, he established pure recurrence relations connecting four successive polynomials, as well as several
mixed recurrence relations.
He also proved that no first
order differential equation,
and only five second order
differential equation of the above type can generate biorthogonal polynomials.
The polynomials thus derived
are the Hermite, Laguerre,
Jacobi, pseudoJacobi, and the
Bessel polynomials. Recently,
J. D. E. Konhauser
[sj considered biorthogonal
polynomials in real polynomials r(x) and s(x).
He
systematically discussed properties which are analogues of properties of orthogonal polynomials,
Included were
necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence and uniqueness of biorthogonal polynomials, a sufficient condition which ensures the existence of pure recurrence relations, and information on the location and number of the real zeros of polynomials.
Konhauser fôj also discussed
the particular biorthogonal polynomials determined by r(x)=x,
s(x) = x^, p(x):^x°e”^, c > 1,
o,cc,).
He showed
that these polynomials possess many properties which are analogues or extensions of the properties of the Laguerre polynomials.
For both sets of polynomials, he established
mixed recurrence relations from which a differential equation of order k41 is derived.
For k;= 1, the differential
equation reduces to the equation for the Laguerre polynomial. For k=2, the differential equations reduce to (3) which was discussed by S. Preiser. In this thesis, in addition to investigating the biorthogonal polynomials suggested by the Jacobi and Bessel
polynomials, we shall be concerned with the mean convergence properties of the biorthogonal expansions, the separation properties of the zeros of these polynomials, and the derivative of biorthogonal polynomials.
2. General Theory. In this section we
develop the general theory
which is both useful and essential in our discussion of biorthogonal polynomials. Vife work in the Hilbert space

the space of functions f(t) for which xb J I f(t) a

for biorthogonality.
In the following theorem we establish
such condition. THEOREM 1 .

Thus the theorem is proved.
When the biorthogonal set is a pair of polynomials and
in x and x^ respectively, the above
theorem asserts that the system
is complete if
and only if the system lU(^(x) is complete.
In particular,
since the classical orthogonal polynomials
of Jacobi,
Daguerre and Hermite all form a complete set, it follows that the corresponding biorthogonal polynomials in x^, satisfying conditions
(1.1), must also be complete.
(The existence of such biorthogonal polynomials will be discussed later). Definition 5 .
