I'm currently reading a text which uses Hermite polynomials defined in the recursive manner. The form of the polynomials are such that C0 C1 are the 0th and 1st terms of a taylor series that generate the remaining coefficients. The author then says the standard value of C1 and C0 are used, but he fails to mention what the standard is?!? Can anyone tell me what the initial values are? I found somewhere that the convention is 2n but I want to make sure.
