What is the "triangular system of equations" that need to be solved? And how to solve it?
I'm not familiar with these terms!Â
However, I came across another article beside yours that dealt with Stieltjes polynomials. Yours deal with Legendre polynomials-Stieltjes polynomials, but theirs deal with Legendre function of the second kind with regard to Stieltjes polynomials.
They have a mathematica code, which I don't quite understand but their code yields 1.08169 for the same n and x as below.

Does this mean that we can generate different Stieltjes polynomials with different orthogonal polynomials and/or functions?
Can you help me out please?Thanks
