Recurrence relations for polynomial sequences via Riordan matrices. (English) Zbl 1250.11029

Summary: We give recurrence relations for any family of generalized Appell polynomials unifying so some known recurrences for many classical sequences of polynomials. Our main tool to get our goal is the Riordan group. We use the product of Riordan matrices to interpret some relationships between different polynomial families. Moreover using the Hadamard product of series we get a general recurrence relation for the polynomial sequences associated to the so called generalized umbral calculus.
