Abstract

Persson and Strang (2003) evaluated the integral over [-1, 1] of a squared odd degree Legendre polynomial divided by x2 as being equal to 2. We consider a similar integral for orthogonal polynomials with respect to a general even orthogonality measure, with Gegenbauer and Hermite polynomials as explicit special cases. Next, after a quadratic transformation, we are led to the general nonsymmetric case, with Jacobi and Laguerre polynomials as explicit special cases. Examples of indefinite summation also occur in this context. The paper concludes with a generalization of the earlier results for Hahn polynomials. There some adaptations have to be made in order to arrive at relatively nice explicit evaluations. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
