Description

Chebyshev polynomials.

Synopsis

# Chebyshev polinomials

A Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind is defined by the following recurrence:

\begin{aligned} T_0(x) &= 1 \\ T_1(x) &= x \\ T_{n+1}(x) &= 2xT_n(x) - T_{n-1}(x) \\ \end{aligned}

Arguments

 :: Vector v Double => Double Parameter of each function. -> v Double Coefficients of each polynomial term, in increasing order. -> Double

Evaluate a Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind. Uses Clenshaw's algorithm.

Arguments

 :: Vector v Double => Double Parameter of each function. -> v Double Coefficients of each polynomial term, in increasing order. -> Double

Evaluate a Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind. Uses Broucke's ECHEB algorithm, and his convention for coefficient handling. It treat 0th coefficient different so

chebyshev x [a0,a1,a2...] == chebyshevBroucke [2*a0,a1,a2...]
