## Chebyshev Approximations

This chapter describes routines for computing Chebyshev approximations
to univariate functions. A Chebyshev approximation is a truncation of
the series f(x) = \sum c_n T_n(x), where the Chebyshev
polynomials T_n(x) = \cos(n \arccos x) provide an orthogonal
basis of polynomials on the interval [-1,1] with the weight
function 1 / \sqrt{1-x^2}. The first few Chebyshev polynomials are,
T_0(x) = 1, T_1(x) = x, T_2(x) = 2 x^2 - 1.
For further information see Abramowitz & Stegun, Chapter 22.
