Evaluates the Chebyshev polynomial series

const double*coef

Evaluates the Chebyshev polynomial series of the First Kind: where c are the coefficient, and \inline T-i are the Chebyshev polynomials evaluated at x/2,

The Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind are a set of orthogonal polynomials defined as the solutions to the Chebyshev differential equation. They are also used as an approximation to a least squares fit and are intimately connected with trigonometric multiple-angle formulas.

If coefficients are for the interval a to b, x must be transformed to before entering the routine. This maps x from (a, b) to (-1, 1), over which the Chebyshev polynomials are defined.

If the coefficients are for the inverted interval, in which (a, b) is mapped to (1/b, 1/a), the transformation required is

If b is infinity, this becomes


Taking advantage of the recurrence properties of the Chebyshev polynomials, the routine requires one more addition per loop than evaluating a nested polynomial of the same degree.


The following code computes solutions to the polynomial
#include <stdio.h>
#include <codecogs/maths/approximation/polynomial/cheb_eval.h>
int main()
  using namespace Maths::Algebra::Polynomial;
  static double C[] = { 3,2,1 };
  for(int x=2;x<=5;x++)
    printf("\n chebEval(%d, A, 2)=%.1lf", x, chebEval(x, C, 2));
  return 0;


chebEval(2, A, 2)=4.0
chebEval(3, A, 2)=5.5
chebEval(4, A, 2)=7.0
chebEval(5, A, 2)=8.5
