Roy Vincent L. Canseco, MSEE      Jan. 2014



Orthogonal polynomials have a property that they satisfy a three-term recurrence of the form


The Legendre polynomials satisfy the following three-term recurrence


Start with k=1  to obtain   P2  given that   P0=1   and   P1=t



k=2  ,  to obtain P3



k=3 , to obtain P4


lastly,  k=4 , to obtain P5
