Chebyshev Polynomials
Figure 3.34:

The
th Chebyshev polynomial may be defined by

(4.46) 
The first three evenorder cases are plotted in
Fig.3.35. (We will only need the even orders for
making Chebyshev windows, as only they are symmetric about time 0.)
Clearly,
and
. Using the doubleangle trig
formula
, it can be verified that

The following properties of the Chebyshev polynomials are well known:
