From Gaussian Quadrature to Chebyshev Quadrature

  1. Aug 14, 2012 #1

    I'm studying about Chebyshev Quadrature and i found so little and confused information about this.
    I dont know if Gauss-Chebyshev Quadrature is the same of Chebyshev Quadrature.
    The only good information that i found was from Wolfram:


    And there is write Chebyshev Quadrature is a simplification of Gaussian quadrature. So here is my question: How can i simplify from Gaussian Quadrature to Chebyshev Quadrature?

    You ask an interesting question about terminology. I don't know the answer, but I think it would help to state the question explicitly rather than expecting readers to follow links.

    The Wikipedia article on Gaussian Quadrature states:

    The question is whether that definition is equivalent to the one on the Wolfram site which defines Chebyshev Quadrature as:

    I had to do the LaTex manually instead of a straight cut-and-past. I hope I haven't introduced any typos.

    Thanks Stephen Tashi.

    Finally i found the proof. Chebyshev quadrature is really hard to find because always when you google it other similar topics appears. So the book i found this information is: Introduction to Numerical Analysis - F. B. Hildebrand
