  author={Rabia Djellouli and David Klein and Matthew Levy},
Given the Fourier-Legendre expansions of f and g, and mild conditions on f and g, we derive the Fourier-Legendre expansion of their product in terms of their corresponding Fourier-Legendre coefficients. In this way, expansions of whole number powers of f may be obtained. We establish upper bounds on rates of convergence. We then employ these expansions to solve semi-analytically a class of nonlinear PDEs with a polynomial nonlinearity of degree 2. The obtained numerical results illustrate the…

The Product of Two Legendre Polynomials
1. It is known that any polynomial in μ. can be expanded as a linear function of Legendre polynomials [1]. In particular, we have The earlier coefficients, say A 0 , A 2 , A 4 may easily be found by
