ABSTRACT 15 pages.-- ArXiv pre-print available at: Submitted to: Inverse Problems We consider the relation of the multi-component 2D Toda hierarchy with matrix orthogonal and biorthogonal polynomials. The multi-graded Hankel reduction of this hierarchy is considered and the corresponding generalized matrix orthogonal polynomials are studied. In particular for these polynomials we consider the recursion relations, and for rank one weights its relation with multiple orthogonal polynomials of mixed type with a type II normalization and the corresponding link with a Riemann--Hilbert problem.

    ABSTRACT: Multivariate orthogonal polynomials in $D$ real dimensions are considered from the perspective of the Cholesky factorization of a moment matrix. The approach allows for the construction of corresponding multivariate orthogonal polynomials, associated second kind functions, Jacobi type matrices and associated three term relations and also Christoffel-Darboux formul{\ae}. The multivariate orthogonal polynomials, its second kind functions and the corresponding Christoffel-Darboux kernels are shown to be quasi-determinants --as well as Schur complements-- of bordered truncations of the moment matrix; quasi-tau functions are introduced. It is proven that the second kind functions are multivariate Cauchy transforms of the multivariate orthogonal polynomials. Discrete and continuous deformations of the measure lead to Toda type integrable hierarchy, being the corresponding flows described through Lax and Zakharov-Shabat equations; bilinear equations are found. Varying size matrix nonlinear partial difference and differential equations of the 2D Toda lattice type are shown to be solved by matrix coefficients of the multivariate orthogonal polynomials. The discrete flows lead to expressions for the multivariate orthogonal polynomials and its second kind functions in terms of shifted quasi-tau matrices, which generalize to the multidimensional realm those that relate the Baker and adjoint Baker functions with ratios of Miwa shifted $\tau$-functions in the 1D scenario. In this context, the multivariate extension of the elementary Darboux transformation is given in terms of quasi-determinants of matrices built up by the evaluation, at a poised set of nodes lying in an appropriate hyperplane in $\mathbb R^D$, of the multivariate orthogonal polynomials. The multivariate Christoffel formula for the iteration of $m$ elementary Darboux transformations is given as a quasi-determinant.

    ABSTRACT: The zeros of orthogonal polynomials on the real line are simple, lie in the interior of the convex hull of the support of the measure and the zeros of consecutive orthogonal polynomials interlace. We study a large class of mixed type multiple orthogonal polynomials for which similar properties hold.

    ABSTRACT: An alternative expression for the Christoffel--Darboux formula for multiple orthogonal polynomials of mixed type is derived from the $LU$ factorization of the moment matrix of a given measure and two sets of weights. We use the action of the generalized Jacobi matrix $J$, also responsible for the recurrence relations, on the linear forms and their duals to obtain the result.
