User documentation

Here are some functions for constructing individual members of certain families of orthogonal polynomials.

Constructors and pseudo-constructors

Let n be a non-negative integer, and x a ring element (typically an indeterminate or a number). The functions below evaluate the corresponding polynomial at x: if x is an indeterminate then the polynomial itself is returned.

Maintainer documentation

Some of the Chebyshev functions are not used, but I left them there in case they ever become useful.

Bugs, shortcomings and other ideas

The dispatch functions for Hermite polynomials have not been tested; so I do not know if the criterion for choosing between "explicit" and "iterative" implementations actually makes any sense.
