Hello, I have a simple question: in Mathematica the Jacobi polynomials are implemented as JacobiP[n, a, b, z], see http://mathworld.wolfram.com/JacobiPolynomial.html Is JacobiP[n, a, b, z] also defined if n is not an integer? More general, is JacobiP[n, a, b, z] defined for all real n, a, b and z? Thanks!
