To multiply a Laguerre series by an independent variable, use the polynomial.laguerre.lagmulx() method in Python. Multiply the Laguerre series c by x, where x is the independent variable. The parameter c is a 1-D array 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 an array −

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

Display the array −

print("Our Array...\n",c)

Check the Dimensions −

print("\nDimensions of our Array...\n",c.ndim)

Get the Datatype −

print("\nDatatype of our Array object...\n",c.dtype)

Get the Shape −

print("\nShape of our Array object...\n",c.shape)

To multiply a Laguerre series by an independent variable, use the polynomial.laguerre.lagmulx() method in Python −

print("\nResult....\n",L.lagmulx(c))

## Example

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

# Create an array
c = np.array([1, 2, 3])

# Display the array
print("Our Array...\n",c)

# Check the Dimensions
print("\nDimensions of our Array...\n",c.ndim)

# Get the Datatype
print("\nDatatype of our Array object...\n",c.dtype)

# Get the Shape
print("\nShape of our Array object...\n",c.shape)

# To multiply a Laguerre series by an independent variable, use the polynomial.laguerre.lagmulx() method in Python Numpy
print("\nResult....\n",L.lagmulx(c))

## Output

Our Array...
[1 2 3]

Dimensions of our Array...
1

Datatype of our Array object...
int64

Shape of our Array object...
(3,)

Result....
[-1. -1. 11. -9.]
