The relation of the \$d\$-orthogonal polynomials to the Appell polynomials.
(English)
[J] J. Comput. Appl. Math. 70, No.2, 279-295 (1996). ISSN 0377-0427

Author's abstract: We are dealing with the concept of \$d\$-dimensional orthogonal (abbreviated \$d\$-orthogonal) polynomials, that is to say polynomials verifying one standard recurrence relation of order \$d+1\$. Among the \$d\$-orthogonal polynomials one singles out the natural generalizations of certain classical orthogonal polynomials. In particular, we are concerned, in the present paper, with the solution of the following problem (P): Find all polynomial sequences which are at the same time Appell polynomials and \$d\$-orthogonal. The resulting polynomials are a natural extension of the Hermite polynomials. A sequence of these polynomials is obtained. All the elements of its \$(d+1)\$-order recurrence are explicitly determined. A generating function, a \$(d+1)\$-order differential equation satisfied by each polynomial and a characterization of this sequence through a vectorial functional equation are also given. Among such polynomials one singles out the \$d\$-symmetrical ones (Definition 1.7) which are the \$d\$-orthogonal polynomials analogous to the Hermite classical ones. When \$d=1\$ (ordinary orthogonality), we meet again the classical orthogonal polynomials of Hermite.
