# ClassicalOrthogonalPolynomials.jl

A Julia package for classical orthogonal polynomials and expansions

This package implements classical orthogonal polynomials.

julia> using ClassicalOrthogonalPolynomials, ContinuumArrays

Other examples include `chebyshevu`

, `legendrep`

, `jacobip`

, `ultrasphericalc`

, `hermiteh`

and `laguerrel`

.

For expansion, it supports usage as quasi-arrays where one axis is continuous and the other axis is discrete (countably infinite), as implemented in QuasiArrays.jl and ContinuumArrays.jl.

julia> P = Legendre(); # Legendre polynomials
julia> size(P) # uncountable ∞ x countable ∞
(ℵ₁, ∞)
julia> axes(P) # essentially (-1..1, 1:∞), Inclusion plays the same role as Slice
(Inclusion(-1.0..1.0 (Chebyshev)), OneToInf())
julia> P[0.1,1:10] # [P_0(0.1), …, P_9(0.1)]

This also works for associated Legendre polynomials as weighted Ultraspherical polynomials:

julia> associatedlegendre(m) = ((-1)^m*prod(1:2:(2m-1)))*(UltrasphericalWeight((m+1)/2).*Ultraspherical(m+1/2))
associatedlegendre (generic function with 1 method)
julia> associatedlegendre(2)[0.1,1:10]

## p-Finite Element Method

The language of quasi-arrays gives a natural framework for constructing p-finite element methods. The convention is that adjoint-products are understood as inner products over the axes with uniform weight. To solve Poisson's equation using its weak formulation with Dirichlet conditions we can thus expand in a weighted Jacobi basis:

julia> P¹¹ = Jacobi(1.0,1.0); # Quasi-matrix of Jacobi polynomials
julia> w = JacobiWeight(1.0,1.0); # quasi-vector correspoinding to (1-x^2)
julia> w[0.1] ≈ (1-0.1^2)
true
julia> S = w .* P¹¹; # Quasi-matrix of weighted Jacobi polynomials
julia> D = Derivative(axes(S,1)); # quasi-matrix corresponding to derivative
julia> Δ = (D*S)'*(D*S) # weak laplacian corresponding to inner products of weighted Jacobi polynomials
