# numpy.polynomial.hermite.hermint¶

`numpy.polynomial.hermite.``hermint`(c, m=1, k=[], lbnd=0, scl=1, axis=0)[source]

Integrate a Hermite series.

Returns the Hermite series coefficients c integrated m times from lbnd along axis. At each iteration the resulting series is multiplied by scl and an integration constant, k, is added. The scaling factor is for use in a linear change of variable. (“Buyer beware”: note that, depending on what one is doing, one may want scl to be the reciprocal of what one might expect; for more information, see the Notes section below.) The argument c is an array of coefficients from low to high degree along each axis, e.g., [1,2,3] represents the series `H_0 + 2*H_1 + 3*H_2` while [[1,2],[1,2]] represents ```1*H_0(x)*H_0(y) + 1*H_1(x)*H_0(y) + 2*H_0(x)*H_1(y) + 2*H_1(x)*H_1(y)``` if axis=0 is `x` and axis=1 is `y`.

Parameters
carray_like

Array of Hermite series coefficients. If c is multidimensional the different axis correspond to different variables with the degree in each axis given by the corresponding index.

mint, optional

Order of integration, must be positive. (Default: 1)

k{[], list, scalar}, optional

Integration constant(s). The value of the first integral at `lbnd` is the first value in the list, the value of the second integral at `lbnd` is the second value, etc. If `k == []` (the default), all constants are set to zero. If `m == 1`, a single scalar can be given instead of a list.

lbndscalar, optional

The lower bound of the integral. (Default: 0)

sclscalar, optional

Following each integration the result is multiplied by scl before the integration constant is added. (Default: 1)

axisint, optional

Axis over which the integral is taken. (Default: 0).

New in version 1.7.0.

Returns
Sndarray

Hermite series coefficients of the integral.

Raises
ValueError

If `m < 0`, `len(k) > m`, `np.ndim(lbnd) != 0`, or `np.ndim(scl) != 0`.

Notes

Note that the result of each integration is multiplied by scl. Why is this important to note? Say one is making a linear change of variable in an integral relative to x. Then , so one will need to set scl equal to - perhaps not what one would have first thought.

Also note that, in general, the result of integrating a C-series needs to be “reprojected” onto the C-series basis set. Thus, typically, the result of this function is “unintuitive,” albeit correct; see Examples section below.

Examples

```>>> from numpy.polynomial.hermite import hermint
>>> hermint([1,2,3]) # integrate once, value 0 at 0.
array([1. , 0.5, 0.5, 0.5])
>>> hermint([1,2,3], m=2) # integrate twice, value & deriv 0 at 0
array([-0.5       ,  0.5       ,  0.125     ,  0.08333333,  0.0625    ]) # may vary
>>> hermint([1,2,3], k=1) # integrate once, value 1 at 0.
array([2. , 0.5, 0.5, 0.5])
>>> hermint([1,2,3], lbnd=-1) # integrate once, value 0 at -1
array([-2. ,  0.5,  0.5,  0.5])
>>> hermint([1,2,3], m=2, k=[1,2], lbnd=-1)
array([ 1.66666667, -0.5       ,  0.125     ,  0.08333333,  0.0625    ]) # may vary
