- Homework Statement
- I am trying to orthogonalize {1,x,x²}

- Relevant Equations
- Just the inner product of functions space.

Suppose p = a + bx + cx².

I am trying to orthogonalize the basis {1,x,x²}

I finished finding {1,x,x²-(1/3)}, but this seems different from the second legendre polynomial.

What is the problem here? I thought could be the a problem about orthonormalization, but check and is not.
