^{-1}x), |x|≤1

cosh(Ncosh

^{-1}x), |x|>1

And the recursive formula for the chebyshev polynomial of order N is given as

T

_{N}(x)= 2xT

_{N-1}(x)- T

_{N-2}(x)

Thus for a chebyshev filter of order 5, we obtain

T

_{5}(x)=2xT

_{4}(x)-T

^{4}-8x

^{2}+1)-( 4x

^{3}-3x )= 16x

^{5}-20x

^{3}+5x.

7. For |x|≤1, |T_{N}(x)|≤1, and it oscillates between -1 and +1 a number of times proportional to N.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: For |x|≤1, |T

_{N}(x)|≤1, and it oscillates between -1 and +1 a number of times proportional to N.

The above is evident from the equation,

T

_{N}(x) = cos(Ncos

^{-1}x), |x|≤1.

8. Chebyshev polynomials of odd orders are:

a) Even functions

b) Odd functions

c) Exponential functions

d) Logarithmic functions

View Answer

Explanation: Chebyshev polynomials of odd orders are odd functions because they contain only odd powers of x.

9. What is the value of T_{N}(0) for even degree N?

a) -1

b) +1

c) 0

d) ±1

View Answer

Explanation: We know that a chebyshev polynomial of degree N is defined as

T

_{N}(x) = cos(Ncos

^{-1}x), |x|≤1

cosh(Ncosh

^{-1}x), |x|>1

For x=0, we have T

_{N}(0)=cos(Ncos

^{-1}0)=cos(N.π/2)=±1 for N even.

10. T_{N}(-x)=(-1)^{N}T_{N}(x)

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: We know that a chebyshev polynomial of degree N is defined as

T

_{N}(x) = cos(Ncos

^{-1}x), |x|≤1

cosh(Ncosh

^{-1}x), |x|>1

=> T

_{N}(-x)= cos(Ncos

^{-1}(-x))= cos(N(π-cos

^{-1}x))= cos(Nπ-Ncos

^{-1}x)= (-1)

^{N}cos(Ncos

^{-1}x)= (-1)

^{N}T

_{N}(x)

Thus we get, T

_{N}(-x)=(-1)NT

_{N}(x).
