GegenbauerC

FilledSmallSquare GegenbauerC[n, m, x] gives the Gegenbauer polynomial .

FilledSmallSquare GegenbauerC[n, x] gives the renormalized form .

FilledSmallSquare Mathematical function (see Section A.3.10).

FilledSmallSquare Explicit polynomials are given for integer n and for any m.

FilledSmallSquare satisfies the differential equation .

FilledSmallSquare The Gegenbauer polynomials are orthogonal on the interval with weight function , corresponding to integration over a unit hypersphere.

FilledSmallSquare GegenbauerC[n, 0, x] is always zero.
