To show that two Legendre polynomials(Pn and Pm) are orthogonal wht is the test that i have to use?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is it this?

[tex] \int_{-1}^{1} P_{n}(x)P_{m}(x) dx = 0 [/tex]

in that case to prove that P3 and P1 are orthogonal i have to use the above formula??
