I've just read a paper that references the use of student-t orthogonal polynomials. I understand how the Gauss-Hermite polynomials are derived, however applying the same process to the weight function (1 + t^2/v)^-(v+1)/2 I can't quite get an answer that looks anything like a polynomial.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would anyone be able to provide me with the student-t polynomials, which I can check my derivation against?

Thank you.
