They are also the extremal polynomials for many other properties. These equations are special cases of the Sturm—Liouville differential equation.
Not to be confused with discrete Chebyshev polynomials. The polynomials of polynomialls first kind T n are orthogonal with respect to the weight. Alternatively, when you cannot evaluate the inner product of the function you are trying to approximate, the discrete orthogonality condition gives an often useful result for approximate coefficients. Thus these polynomials have only two finite critical valuesthe defining property of Shabat polynomials. Special hypergeometric functions Orthogonal polynomials Polynomials Eivlin theory.
Concerning integration, the first derivative of the T n implies that. Chebyshev polynomials are important in approximation theory because the roots of the Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind, which are also called Chebyshev nodesare used as nodes in polynomial interpolation.
For Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind the product expands to. The second derivative of the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind is. Both T n and U n form a sequence of orthogonal polynomials. These products can be reduced to combinations of Chebyshev polynomials with lower or higher degree and concluding statements about the product are easier to make.
That cos nx is an n th-degree polynomial in cos x can be seen by observing that cos nx is the real part of one side of de Moivre’s formula. Polynomials in Chebyshev form can be evaluated using the Clenshaw algorithm. This collection of polynomiald corresponds to the extrema of the highest order polynomial in the sum, plus the endpoints and is given by:.
The recurrence relationship of the derivative of Chebyshev polynomials can be derived from these relations:. The ordinary generating function for U n is.

Because at extreme points of T n we have. The identity is quite useful in conjunction with the recursive generating formula, inasmuch as it enables one to calculate the cosine of any integral multiple of an angle solely in terms of the cosine of the base angle. T n are a special case of Lissajous curves with frequency ratio equal to n. The generating function relevant for 2-dimensional potential theory and multipole expansion is. T n x is functionally conjugate to nxcodified in the nesting property below.
The letter T is used because of the alternative transliterations of the name Chebyshev as TchebycheffTchebyshev French or Tschebyschow German. The Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind are defined by the recurrence relation. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
Pure and Applied Mathematics. This page was last edited on 28 Decemberat This relationship is used in the Chebyshev spectral method of solving differential equations.
Polynomialz working with Chebyshev polynomials cheyshev often products of two of them occur. They are even or odd functions of x as n is even or odd, so when written as polynomials of xit only has even or odd degree terms respectively. Both the first and second kinds of Chebyshev polynomial have extrema at the endpoints, given by:.
Then C polynomlals x and C m x are commuting polynomials:. The Chebyshev polynomials are a special case of the ultraspherical or Gegenbauer polynomialswhich themselves are a special case of the Jacobi polynomials:.
This sum is called a Chebyshev series or a Chebyshev expansion. The abundance of the theorems and identities inherited from Fourier series make the Chebyshev poljnomials important tools in numeric analysis ; for example they are the most popular general purpose basis functions used in the spectral method often in favor of trigonometric series due to generally faster convergence for continuous functions Gibbs’ phenomenon is still a problem.
Similarly, the roots of U n are. Since a Chebyshev series is related to a Fourier cosine series through a change of variables, all of the theorems, identities, etc.

Furthermore, as mentioned previously, the Chebyshev polynomials form an orthogonal basis polnyomials among other things implies that the coefficients a n can be determined easily through the application of an inner product.
One can find the coefficients a n either through the application of an inner product or by the discrete orthogonality condition. The T n also satisfy a discrete orthogonality condition:.
By the same reasoning, sin nx is the irvlin part of the polynomial, in which all powers of sin x are odd and thus, if one is factored out, the remaining can be replaced to create a n-1 th-degree polynomial in cos x. Three more useful formulas for evaluating Chebyshev polynomials can be concluded from this product expansion:. Two common methods for determining the coefficients a n are through the use of the inner product as in Galerkin’s method and through the use of collocation which chebyshdv related to interpolation.
An arbitrary polynomial of degree N can be written in terms of the Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind.
