polynomial.chebyshev.chebmul(c1, c2)[source]#

Multiply one Chebyshev series by another.

Returns the product of two Chebyshev series c1 * c2. The arguments are sequences of coefficients, from lowest order “term” to highest, e.g., [1,2,3] represents the series T_0 + 2*T_1 + 3*T_2.

c1, c2array_like

1-D arrays of Chebyshev series coefficients ordered from low to high.


Of Chebyshev series coefficients representing their product.


In general, the (polynomial) product of two C-series results in terms that are not in the Chebyshev polynomial basis set. Thus, to express the product as a C-series, it is typically necessary to “reproject” the product onto said basis set, which typically produces “unintuitive live” (but correct) results; see Examples section below.


>>> from numpy.polynomial import chebyshev as C
>>> c1 = (1,2,3)
>>> c2 = (3,2,1)
>>> C.chebmul(c1,c2) # multiplication requires "reprojection"
