Hi
The Legendre polynomials (Lp) of degree n=5 and x=0.2 is 0.30752 and according to Boost article, the Legendre-Stieltjes polynomials (LSp) of degree n=5 and x=0.2 is 0.53239.
So if I want to compute the LSp for n=6, how do I do it? What is the formula you are using to be able to calculate the LSp for any nth degree?
If a recurrence relation is not possible, then is there a closed form mathematical representation to calculate any nth degree LSp?
Thanks

What precisely are you trying to compute? Are you trying to find the coefficients of the polynomials in the standard basis? Are you trying to evaluate them at a point?

Note that the Legendre-Stieltjes polynomials do not satisfy three-term recurrence relations, and so recursive rules (depending on what precisely you mean by that) are not available.

Hi,

With regard to the article on Boost:Â

Can anyone help me to compute the stieltjes polynomials please? I'm coding in VBA and I'm looking for some recursive rules to calculate same.

Thanks
Vick
