### What should be expected values of weights in statistics (specifically a set of biweight weightings)

I am working on a project that involves taking the biweight sample variance of a velocity dataset. This is defined as $\sigma_{BI}^2 = N\dfrac{\sum_{|u_i|<1}(1-u_i^2)^4(v_i-\bar{v})}{D(D-1)}$ ...

### Legendre Polynomial coefficients

Can you please write out explicitly the formula for the coefficients? From Wikipedia, \begin{aligned} P_{n}(x)&={\frac {1}{2^{n}}}\sum _{k=0}^{n}{n \choose k}^{2}(x-1)^{n-k}(x+1)^{k}\\&=\sum ...

### How to solve quadratic equation in 4 variables?

I am trying to solve the equation $a^2 + b^2 + c^2 + d^2 = \alpha$ where alpha is a constant and $a, b, c$, and $d$ are the $4$ variables. I need to find some integer values of $a, b, c$ and $d$ which ...

### Orthogonality of spherical Bessel functions

Please consider the following toy function $$k_{i}\int^{\infty}_{0}j_{l}(k_{i}*x)*j_{l}(k*x)dx$$ where $j_{l}$ are spherical Bessel functions (sbf) and $k_{i}$ and $k$ are positive constants. It ...

### Generalized Hermite Function as eigenfunction of a differential operator

I'm going through this paper. The article defines function function $\phi_n^\mu(x)$ that is orthonormal on $L^2$ with measure $dm = dx$: \phi^\mu_n =\left(\frac{\gamma_\mu(n)}{\...

### Tensor Eigenstates

I have the following equation: $$f_i^´(t+1)=\sum_{jk}R_{i|jk}\tilde{f_j}(t)\tilde{f_k}(t)$$ It is about evolution of a population. I use this equation in my python program in the following way: <...

### How to change position of the axes values of a Sage plot.

I am plotting 2D functions on Sage, and I would like to move the values displayed along the $y$ axis (the ticks) from the left of the axis to the rigth, because they bother me there. I had a look and ...

### Discretization of nonlinear system for using extend Kalman filter in python

I have a continuous nonlinear system which includes three differential equations: $\dot{x}=f(x, u)+\omega_k$ Now I wanna use numerical method to make discretization of it. Then I can use it in a ...

### Computationally check for roots/positiveness of a big polynomial in a given interval

For a proof, I need to check that given a little interval $(0, 0.28)$ some concrete polynomials $\in \mathbb{Q}[w]$ (polynomials in one variable ranging over the real numbers, with degrees around 50) ...

### Finding equilibrium points of a system of nonlinear differential equations

I am currently working on a spatially explicit ODE model with dispersion to study the population dynamics of mosquitoes. I wish to compute the equilibrium values of the populations as functions of the ...
In Python, using MatPlotLib, given [vector] parameters $a$ and $b$ and [scalar] parameter $c$, I want to draw a general cubic plane curve in 2-dimensional space (regular plane with $x$ and $y$ axes): \$...
