numpy.polynomial.laguerre.lagmul(c1, c2)[source]

Multiply one Laguerre series by another.

Returns the product of two Laguerre series c1 * c2. The arguments are sequences of coefficients, from lowest order “term” to highest, e.g., [1,2,3] represents the series P_0 + 2*P_1 + 3*P_2.


c1, c2 : array_like

1-D arrays of Laguerre series coefficients ordered from low to high.


out : ndarray

Of Laguerre series coefficients representing their product.

In general, the (polynomial) product of two C-series results in terms that are not in the Laguerre polynomial basis set. Thus, to express the product as a Laguerre series, it is necessary to “reproject” the product onto said basis set, which may produce “unintuitive” (but correct) results; see Examples section below.

>>> lagmul([1, 2, 3], [0, 1, 2])
