Homework Help: Inner product of polynomials

  1. Mar 28, 2013 #1
    So I have an inner product defined as:

    <p(x),q(x)> = p(-1)q(-1) + p(0)q(0) + p(1)q(1)

    I'm trying to find the inner product of this with respct to the above definition:

    < 1, 1> ......wouldn't this just be equal to 3? Since there are no variables and it would correspond directly to the number.

    it's w.r.t. the norm of the inner product.

    never mind it is 3, the solutions just made it hard to understand that's what they were doing.
