Casoratian

Casoratian
gives the Casoratian determinant for the sequences , , ... depending on n.
Casoratian
gives the Casoratian determinant for the basis of the solutions of the linear difference equation eqn involving .
Casoratian
gives the Casoratian determinant for the system of linear difference equations eqns.
  • Linear independence of the functions , , ... is equivalent to the vanishing of the Casoratian.
These sequences are linearly independent:
The following sequences are linearly dependent:
Here the sequences are linearly dependent only when :
