# scipy.special.roots_laguerre¶

scipy.special.roots_laguerre(n, mu=False)[source]

Compute the sample points and weights for Gauss-Laguerre quadrature. The sample points are the roots of the nth degree Laguerre polynomial, $$L_n(x)$$. These sample points and weights correctly integrate polynomials of degree $$2n - 1$$ or less over the interval $$[0, \infty]$$ with weight function $$w(x) = e^{-x}$$. See 22.2.13 in [AS] for details.

Parameters
nint

mubool, optional

If True, return the sum of the weights, optional.

Returns
xndarray

Sample points

wndarray

Weights

mufloat

Sum of the weights
