Hi Folks - I have an alternative form of the set Hermite polynomials I'd 
like to use.  They are defined differently than the mathematica function 
HermiteH.  Unfortunately, the recursive generating function takes way 
too long.  I can generate a list of these functions using the different 
order derrivatives of the gaussian PDF (that's how they're defined):

{1, -x, -1 + x^2, -x(-3 + x^2) .... }

But I don't seem to be able to assign each function to H[x_,i_]:=   
where i is the index from 0 to the number of functions in the list.

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance.
