Abstract

There have been a number of definitions of the classical orthogonal polynomials, but each definition has left out some important orthogonal polynomials which have enough nice properties to justify including them in the category of classical orthogonal polynomials. We summarize some of the previous work on classical orthogonal polynomials, state our definition, and give a few new orthogonality relations for some of the classical orthogonal polynomials.
