Slovák, Jan (ed.) et al., The proceedings of the 21th winter school “Geometry and physics”, Srní, Czech Republic, January 13-20, 2001. Palermo: Circolo Matemàtico di Palermo, Suppl. Rend. Circ. Mat. Palermo, II. Ser. 69, 117-130 (2002).
The paper deals with extensions of the finite operator calculus of G.-C. Rota called \(\psi\)-extensions which give a framework for corresponding quantum group investigations. This also covers the instance of the well-known \(q\)-analogue of umbral calculus. The article also contains glossaries of the most important terms and notations used by Ward, Viskov, Markowsky and Roman on one side and the Rota-oriented notations on the other side.
