Inner products of Jacobi polynomials

Description

This function returns a vector with n + 1 elements containing the inner product of an order k Jacobi polynomial, P_k^{≤ft( {α ,β } \right)} ≤ft( x \right), with itself (i.e. the norm squared) for orders k = 0,\;1,\; … ,\;n .

Usage

Arguments

n

integer value for the highest polynomial order

alpha

numeric value for the first polynomial parameter

beta

numeric value for the first polynomial parameter

Details

The formula used to compute the innser products is as follows.

h_n = ≤ft\langle {P_n^{≤ft( {α ,β } \right)} |P_n^{≤ft( {α ,β } \right)} } \right\rangle = \frac{{2^{α + β + 1} }} {{2\,n + α + β + 1}}\frac{{Γ ≤ft( {n + α + 1} \right)\,Γ ≤ft( {n + β + 1} \right)}} {{n!\;Γ ≤ft( {n + α + β + 1} \right)}}.

Value

A vector with n + 1 elements

1

inner product of order 0 orthogonal polynomial

2

inner product of order 1 orthogonal polynomial

...

n+1

inner product of order n orthogonal polynomial
