Thread: Proof using deravatives.

1. Proof using deravatives.

Hi,
Wasn't too sure where to post this so feel free to move.
If
$
\int x^MK(x)dx\not=0
$

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
$
\int x^{M+2}K(x)dx\not=0
$

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?

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