Orthogonal polynomials are an important tool in many areas of pure and applied mathematics. We outline one application in random matrix theory. We discuss generalizations of orthogonal polynomials such as the Muntz orthogonal polynomials investigated by Ulfar Stefansson. Finally, we present some conjectures about biorthogonal polynomials, which would be a great Ph.D. project for any interested student.
