# Associated Legendre polynomial (chart) Calculator

## Calculates a table of the associated Legendre polynomial Pnm(x) and draws the chart.

 The associated Legendre function Pnm(x) has several definitions.$\normal\\type\ A:\ used\ by\ Wolfram(type2),\ etc\\\ P_n^m(x)= {\large \frac{(1+x)^{\frac{m}{2}}}{(1-x)^{\frac{m}{2}}} \frac{\ {}_{\small 2}F_{\small 1} (-n,n+1;1-m;\frac{1-x}{2})}{\Gamma(1-m)} } \\[20]type\ B:\ used\ by\ Maple,\ Wolfram(type3),\ etc\\\ P_n^m(x)= {\large \frac{(x+1)^{\frac{m}{2}}}{(x-1)^{\frac{m}{2}}} \frac{\ {}_{\small 2}F_{\small 1} (-n,n+1;1-m;\frac{1-x}{2})}{\Gamma(1-m)} } \\\vspace{10}$

Great site but I am trying to match your results with my own calculations which I need badly and so far there is no match. There are some discrepancies. I will have to double check everything time and again.Many thanks,
