Chain sequences and symmetric generalized orthogonal polynomials
MetadataShow full item record
in this paper, we derive an explicit expression for the parameter sequences of a chain sequence in terms of the corresponding orthogonal polynomials and their associated polynomials. We use this to study the orthogonal polynomials K-n((lambda.,M,k)) associated with the probability measure dphi(lambda,M,k;x), which is the Gegenbauer measure of parameter lambda + 1 with two additional mass points at +/-k. When k = 1 we obtain information on the polynomials K-n((lambda.,M)) which are the symmetric Koornwinder polynomials. Monotonicity properties of the zeros of K-n((lambda,M,k)) in relation to M and k are also given. (C) 2002 Elsevier B.V. B.V. All rights reserved.
