Mathematica Notation

Traditional Notation

Polynomials > LegendreP[n,z] > Integral representations > Integral representations of negative integer order




Input Form

LegendreP[n, z] == ((-1)^n/(2^n n!)) D[(1 - z^2)^n, {z, n}]

Standard Form

Cell[BoxData[RowBox[List[RowBox[List["LegendreP", "[", RowBox[List["n", ",", "z"]], "]"]], "\[Equal]", RowBox[List[FractionBox[SuperscriptBox[RowBox[List["(", RowBox[List["-", "1"]], ")"]], "n"], RowBox[List[SuperscriptBox["2", "n"], " ", RowBox[List["n", "!"]]]]], RowBox[List[SubscriptBox["\[PartialD]", RowBox[List["{", RowBox[List["z", ",", "n"]], "}"]]], SuperscriptBox[RowBox[List["(", RowBox[List["1", "-", SuperscriptBox["z", "2"]]], ")"]], "n"]]]]]]]]]
