    Proof using deravatives.

    Hi,
    Wasn't too sure where to post this so feel free to move.
    If
    <br />
\int x^MK(x)dx\not=0<br />
    and
    \int x^mK(x)dx=0
    where m = 1,2,3......M-1
    Show that the formula
    K_{[M+2]}(x)=\frac{3}{2}K_{[M]}(x)+\frac{1}{2}xK'_{[M]}(x).
    Produces K of order M+2
    and now
    <br />
\int x^{M+2}K(x)dx\not=0<br />

    Any help appreciated cos I don't have a clue where to begin.

    Your notation is a bit confusing. Is the " K_{[M]}" the same as the " k_M" in your first equation?

    Sorry, no they are different. That notation was from a different part I forgot to delete it.
