# scipy.special.chebys¶

scipy.special.chebys(n, monic=False)[source]

Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind on $$[-2, 2]$$.

Defined as $$S_n(x) = U_n(x/2)$$ where $$U_n$$ is the nth Chebychev polynomial of the second kind.

Parameters
nint

Degree of the polynomial.

monicbool, optional

If True, scale the leading coefficient to be 1. Default is False.

Returns
Sorthopoly1d

Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind on $$[-2, 2]$$.

chebyu

Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind

Notes

The polynomials $$S_n(x)$$ are orthogonal over $$[-2, 2]$$ with weight function $$\sqrt{1 - (x/2)}^2$$.
