numpy.polynomial.laguerre.lagsub(c1, c2)[source]

Subtract one Laguerre series from another.

Returns the difference of two Laguerre series c1 - c2. The sequences of coefficients are from lowest order term to highest, i.e., [1,2,3] represents the series P_0 + 2*P_1 + 3*P_2.


c1, c2 : array_like

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


out : ndarray

Of Laguerre series coefficients representing their difference.

Unlike multiplication, division, etc., the difference of two Laguerre series is a Laguerre series (without having to “reproject” the result onto the basis set) so subtraction, just like that of “standard” polynomials, is simply “component-wise.”
