# laguerre.recurrences: Recurrence relations for Laguerre polynomials In orthopolynom: Collection of functions for orthogonal and orthonormal polynomials

## Description

This function returns a data frame with n + 1 rows and four named columns containing the coefficient vectors c, d, e and f of the recurrence relations for the order k Laguerre polynomial, L_n ≤ft( x \right), and for orders k = 0,\;1,\; … ,\;n.

## Usage

 1 laguerre.recurrences(n, normalized=FALSE) 

## Arguments

 n integer value for the highest polynomial order normalized boolean value which, if TRUE, returns recurrence relations for normalized polynomials

## Value

A data frame with the recurrence relation parameters.
