Create list of ultraspherical polynomials

Description

This function returns a list with n + 1 elements containing the order k ultraspherical polynomials, C_k^{≤ft( α \right)} ≤ft( x \right), for orders k = 0,\;1,\; … ,\;n.

Usage

1
ultraspherical.polynomials(n, alpha, normalized=FALSE)

Arguments

n

integer value for the highest polynomial order

alpha

polynomial parameter

normalized

a boolean value which, if TRUE, returns a list of normalized orthogonal polynomials

Details

The function ultraspherical.recurrences produces a data frame with the recurrence relation parameters for the polynomials. If the normalized argument is FALSE, the function orthogonal.polynomials is used to construct the list of orthogonal polynomial objects. Otherwise, the function orthonormal.polynomials is used to construct the list of orthonormal polynomial objects.

Value

A list of n + 1 polynomial objects

1

order 0 ultraspherical polynomial

2

order 1 ultraspherical polynomial

...

n+1

order n ultraspherical polynomial
