Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2137)


We describe some examples of classical and explicit h-transforms as particular cases of a general mechanism, which is related to the existence of symmetric diffusion operators having orthogonal polynomials as spectral decomposition.
