Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(quick backgroun info) : I am a physics student who has gone through pre quantum type material and a little of quantum mechanics. I am working in a lab with fortan code based on Quantum field theory.

Anyway I am working to change some pieces of this code to attempt to solve a problem by a different way. What I would like to know is:

Does anyone know if its possible to solve the Associated Laguerre Polynomials with fractional order? Normally you must use integers which we have done in our fortran coding. I need to change that but I want to know if using fractional order is possible with laguerre polynomials and will those solutions return real numbers?

Thanks for any help and let me know if I need to be more clear or provide more information,
