Here is a corrected version of the code:
In[1]:=
pi[0, Î¸_] = 0;
pi[1, Î¸_] = 1;
pi[i_, Î¸_] := pi[i, Î¸] =
((2*i - 1)/(i - 1))*Cos[Î¸]*pi[i - 1, Î¸] -
(i/(i - 1))*pi[i - 2, Î¸];
Ï?[i_, Î¸_] := Ï?[i, Î¸] = i*Cos[Î¸]*pi[i, Î¸] -
(i + 1)*pi[i - 1, Î¸];
In[5]:=
pi[14, Pi/3]
Out[5]=
30439185

It would have been nice that you provided an example of such a call.

Not sure to understand what you mean: if the kernel really quits, you
have no more kernel process loaded into memory.

Inconsistent syntax: i is never used in the code: do you mean l? At any
rate, this definition will cause an infinite recursion whenever it is
called. Increasing $RecursionLimit will do nothing.

Here is a corrected version of the code:
In[6]:=
S1Temp[l_, Î¸_] := ((2*l + 1)/(l*(l + 1)))*
(an[l]*pi[l, Î¸] + bn[l]*Ï?[l, Î¸]);
In[7]:=
S1Temp[14, Pi/3]
Out[7]=
29 30439185 an[14] 115937115 bn[14]
--- (--------------- - ----------------)
210 8388608 8388608
Now, the above result might or might not be what you expected since you
did not provide any definition for an[i] and bn[i]. (Are they functions
or arrays of values?)
