FunctionSpace

FunctionSpace
is an option for FindSequenceFunction and related functions that specifies the space of functions to consider for representations.
  • With an explicit setting for FunctionSpace->s, only functions of type s will be considered.
  • Possible types of discrete functions include:
"Polynomial"polynomials
"RationalFunction"rational functions
"HypergeometricTerm"hypergeometric terms
"ConstantRecursive"constant-coefficient difference equation solutions
"HolonomicSequence"polynomial-coefficient difference equation solutions
  • Possible types of continuous functions include:
"Polynomial"polynomials
"RationalFunction"rational functions
"Hypergeometric"hypergeometric functions
"HolonomicFunction"polynomial-coefficient differential equation solutions
By default a small generating function is found if possible:
