comment Choice of the First Term in Legendre Polynomials
I have a gut feeling that the constants were chosen in such a way, so that terms were identical to those obtained using the generating function. But I can not find any credible source to back my intuition.

@Andre Nicolas: I understand it now. If you want you could elaborate your first comment and add it to the answer.

@valtron : No, I was talking about the roots of the quadratic equation.....for the unknown x can never be real and distinct, but must be imaginary,unless a and b are proportional.

comment Proof of Cauchy–Schwarz inequality
I am familiar with the proof give in Steele's book. But I am trying to understand this particular proof (i.e., the one form Hilbert and Courant.)

comment Proof of Cauchy–Schwarz inequality
Yes, I know that! I can't figure out why are they avoiding the real roots and from the language that is being employed by the authors, does it not mean that "The roots can not be real unless a and b are proportional" And just before that they have stated a and b must be proportional. Sorry, but I am confused.
