Question: How to force Maple to express the derivatives of Legendre polynomials explicitely in terms of Legendre polynomial using the relevant recurrence relations?


Consider the following example:


>> Maple express the second derivative of Legendre polynomial as


This form cannot, for instance, be integrated if we set n, for example, to 2.

i was wondering whether there is a trick to force Maple to express those derivatives in term of P_n using the relevent recurrence relations. This will help for further manipulations.


Thanks a lot!
