HermiteFactory
(*args)¶ Hermite specific orthonormal univariate polynomial family.
For the
Normal
distribution. Available constructor:
 HermiteFactory()
Notes
Any sequence of orthogonal polynomials has a recurrence formula relating any three consecutive polynomials as follows:
The recurrence coefficients for the Hermite polynomials come analytically and read:
Examples
>>> import openturns as ot >>> polynomial_factory = ot.HermiteFactory() >>> for i in range(3): ... print(polynomial_factory.build(i)) 1 X 0.707107 + 0.707107 * X^2
