Subtract one Legendre series from another.
Returns the difference of two Legendre series c1 - c2. The sequences of coefficients are from lowest order term to highest, i.e., [1,2,3] represents the series
P_0 + 2*P_1 + 3*P_2.
c1, c2 : array_like
1-D arrays of Legendre series coefficients ordered from low to high.
out : ndarray
Of Legendre series coefficients representing their difference.
Unlike multiplication, division, etc., the difference of two Legendre series is a Legendre series (without having to “reproject” the result onto the basis set) so subtraction, just like that of “standard” polynomials, is simply “component-wise.”
>>> from numpy.polynomial import legendre as L >>> c1 = (1,2,3) >>> c2 = (3,2,1) >>> L.legsub(c1,c2) array([-2., 0., 2.]) >>> L.legsub(c2,c1) # -C.legsub(c1,c2) array([ 2., 0., -2.])
