scipy.special.roots_laguerre(n, mu=False)[source]

Gauss-Laguerre quadrature.

Computes the sample points and weights for Gauss-Laguerre quadrature. The sample points are the roots of the n-th degree Laguerre polynomial, \(L_n(x)\). These sample points and weights correctly integrate polynomials of degree \(2n - 1\) or less over the interval \([0, \infty]\) with weight function \(f(x) = e^{-x}\).


n : int

quadrature order

mu : bool, optional

If True, return the sum of the weights, optional.


x : ndarray

Sample points

w : ndarray


mu : float

Sum of the weights
