In this talk, I will talk about recent developments on the point
mass problem on the real line.
Starting from the point mass formula for orthogonal polynomials on the real
line, I will present new methods employed to compute the asymptotic formulae
for the orthogonal polynomials and how these formulae can be applied to
solve the point mass problem when the recurrence coefficients are
asymptotically identical.
The technical difficulties involved in the computation will also be
discussed.
