Continuous symmetrized Sobolev inner products of order N (II)

M. Isabel Bueno, Francisco Marcellán, and Jorge Sánchez-Ruiz


Given a symmetrized Sobolev inner product of order $N$, the corresponding sequence of monic orthogonal polynomials $\{Q_n\}$ satisfies $Q_{2n}(x)=P_n(x^2)$, $Q_{2n+1}(x)=xR_n(x^2)$ for certain sequences of monic polynomials $\{P_n\}$ and $\{R_n\}$. In this paper we consider the particular case when all the measures that define the symmetrized Sobolev inner product are equal, absolutely continuous and semiclassical. Under such restrictions, we give explicit algebraic relations between the sequences $\{P_n\}$ and $\{R_n\}$, as well as higher-order recurrence relations that they satisfy.
