On Gauss quadrature formulas with equal weights

  • Franz Peherstorfer


It is well known that the Chebyshev weight function (1−x2)−1/2 is the only weight function (up to a linear transformation) for which then point Gauss quadrature formula has equal weights for alln∈ℕ. In this paper we describe all weight functions for which thenm point Gauss quadrature formula has equal weights for alln∈ℕ, wherem∈ℕ is fixed.
