Quick start

To compute the Legendre polynomials for a given argument x and a degree l, use Pl(x,l):

julia> Pl(0.5, 20)
-0.04835838106737356

To compute the n-th derivative of the Legendre polynomial of degree l at the argument x, use dnPl(x, l, n):

julia> dnPl(0.5, 10, 5)
-61760.91796875

To compute all the polynomials for 0 <= l <= lmax, use collectPl(x; lmax)

julia> collectPl(0.5, lmax = 5)
6-element OffsetArray(::Array{Float64,1}, 0:5) with eltype Float64 with indices 0:5:
  1.0
  0.5
 -0.125
 -0.4375
 -0.2890625
  0.08984375

To compute all the n-th derivatives for 0 <= l <= lmax, use collectdnPl(x; n, lmax)

julia> collectdnPl(0.5, lmax = 5, n = 3)
6-element OffsetArray(::Array{Float64,1}, 0:5) with eltype Float64 with indices 0:5:
  0.0
