Title: Classical multiplier sequences: a special class, continuous transformations, and connections to special functions.

Abstract: This talk considers a special class of classical multiplier sequences, which are interpolated by either logarithmic functions, or `power' functions of the form f(z)=(z+a)^s/ Γ(z+1), where a and s are in R. After presenting some results and problems which remain open, we discuss the notion of continuous transformation of a classical multiplier sequence (in one or more parameters), and highlight some unexpected, but beautiful connections between classical multiplier sequences, Laguerre polynomials, and hypergeometric functions.
