Hey there, does anyone know where I could find a list of Legendre Polynomials? I need them of the order 15 and above, and I haven't been able to find them on the net.
Thanks!

Well you could use the recursion formulae. I haven't seen them listed too high anywhere.

You can get them out of Mathematica, or something like that. If you don't have access to it, tell me exactly what you want to know.

Try google - you will get lots of references.

Does not the Rodrigues' formula eventually give you coefficients of the terms ?

Here's the 14th order:
[tex]-\left( \frac{429}{2048}
\right) +
\frac{45045\,x^2}{2048} -
\frac{765765\,x^4}{2048} +
\frac{4849845\,x^6}{2048} -
\frac{14549535\,x^8}
{2048} +
\frac{22309287\,x^{10}}
{2048} -
\frac{16900975\,x^{12}}
{2048} +
\frac{5014575\,x^{14}}{2048}[/tex]
Aren't I nice?
