Physicist's Hermite Polynomial

Evaluate a physicist's Hermite polynomial.

The physicist's Hermite polynomials are given by

Installation

npm install @stdlib/math-base-tools-hermitepoly

Usage

var hermitepoly = require( '@stdlib/math-base-tools-hermitepoly' );

hermitepoly( n, x )

Evaluates a physicist's Hermite polynomial of degree n.

var v = hermitepoly( 1, 1.0 );
// returns 2.0

v = hermitepoly( 1, 0.5 );
// returns ~1.0

v = hermitepoly( -1, 0.5 );
// returns NaN

v = hermitepoly( 0, 0.5 );
// returns 1.0

v = hermitepoly( 2, 0.5 );
// returns -1.0

hermitepoly.factory( n )

Returns a function for evaluating a physicist's Hermite polynomial of degree n.

var polyval = hermitepoly.factory( 2 );

var v = polyval( 0.5 );
// returns -1.0

Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu');
var hermitepoly = require( '@stdlib/math-base-tools-hermitepoly' );

var x;
var y;
var i;
var j;

for ( i = 0; i < 100; i++ ) {
x = (randu()*100.0) - 50.0;
for ( j = 1; j < 3; j++ ) {
y = hermitepoly( j, x );
console.log( 'H_%d( %d ) = %d', j, x.toFixed( 3 ), y.toFixed( 3 ) );
}
}
