# Divide one Laguerre series by another in Python

PythonNumpyServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To divide one Laguerre series by another, use the polynomial.laguerre.lagdiv() method in Python Numpy. The method returns a [quo,rem] array Of Laguerre series coefficients representing the quotient and remainder.

Returns the quotient-with-remainder of two Laguerre series c1 / c2. The arguments are sequences of coefficients from lowest order “term” to highest, e.g., [1,2,3] represents the series P_0 + 2*P_1 + 3*P_2. The parameters c1 and c2 are 1-D arrays of Laguerre series coefficients ordered from low to high.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np
from numpy.polynomial import laguerre as L

Create 1-D arrays of Laguerre series coefficients −

c1 = np.array([1,2,3])
c2 = np.array([3,2,1])

Display the arrays of coefficients −

print("Array1...\n",c1)
print("\nArray2...\n",c2)

Display the datatype −

print("\nArray1 datatype...\n",c1.dtype)
print("\nArray2 datatype...\n",c2.dtype)

Check the Dimensions of both the arrays −

print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",c1.ndim)
print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",c2.ndim)

Check the Shape of both the arrays −

print("\nShape of Array1...\n",c1.shape)
print("\nShape of Array2...\n",c2.shape)

To divide one Laguerre series by another, use the polynomial.laguerre.lagdiv() method in Python Numpy −

print("\nResult (divide)....\n",L.lagdiv(c1, c2))

## Example

import numpy as np
from numpy.polynomial import laguerre as L

# Create 1-D arrays of Laguerre series coefficients
c1 = np.array([1,2,3])
c2 = np.array([3,2,1])

# Display the arrays of coefficients
print("Array1...\n",c1)
print("\nArray2...\n",c2)

# Display the datatype
print("\nArray1 datatype...\n",c1.dtype)
print("\nArray2 datatype...\n",c2.dtype)

# Check the Dimensions of both the arrays
print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",c1.ndim)
print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",c2.ndim)

# Check the Shape of both the arrays
print("\nShape of Array1...\n",c1.shape)
print("\nShape of Array2...\n",c2.shape)

# To divide one Laguerre series by another, use the polynomial.laguerre.lagdiv() method in Python Numpy
print("\nResult (divide)....\n",L.lagdiv(c1, c2))
