Description

Chebyshev Coefficients for Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind.

Usage

1
chebCoeff(fun, a, b, n)

Arguments

fun

function to be approximated.

a, b

endpoints of the interval.

n

an integer >= 0.

Details

For a function fun on on the interval [a, b] determines the coefficients of the Chebyshev polynomials up to degree n that will approximate the function (in L2 norm).

Value

Vector of coefficients for the Chebyshev polynomials, from low to high degrees (see the example).
