The radial polynomials of the 2D (circular) and 3D (spherical) Zernike functions are tabulated as powers of the radial distance. The reciprocal tabulation of powers of the radial distance in series of radial polynomials is also given, based on projections that take advantage of the orthogonality of the polynomials over the unit interval. They may play a role in the expansion of products of the polynomials into sums, which is demonstrated by some examples. Multiplication of the polynomials by… 
An Orthogonal Set of Weighted Quaternionic Zernike Spherical Functions
In this work, it is proved that the WQZSFs are orthonormal in the unit ball with respect to a suitable weight function.
Quaternion Zernike spherical polynomials
The Zernikes spherical polynomials within quaternionic analysis ((R)QZSPs), which refine and extend the Zernike moments (defined through their polynomial counterparts), are introduced.
Efficient and robust recurrence relations for the Zernike circle polynomials and their derivatives in Cartesian coordinates.
A set of simple recurrence relations that can be used for the unit-normalized Zernike polynomials in polar coordinates and easily adapted to Cartesian coordinates are presented and are superior in performance and precision over the existing algorithm implemented in the software.
A C++ Incarnation of Zernike Circle Functions
An explicit C++ library is provided which deals with Zernike Functions over the unit circle as the main subject. The implementation includes basic means to evaluate the functions at points inside the
The Worst Distortions of Astrometric Instruments and Orthonormal Models for Rectangular Fields of View
The nonorthogonality of algebraic polynomials of field coordinates traditionally used to model field-dependent corrections to astrometric measurements, gives rise to subtle adverse effects. In
Generalized 3D Zernike functions for analytic construction of band-limited line-detecting wavelets
We consider 3D versions of the Zernike polynomials that are commonly used in 2D in optics and lithography. We generalize the 3D Zernike polynomials to functions that vanish to a prescribed degree
A Stable Algorithm computing high-order 3D Zernike Moments and Shape Reconstructions
A series of stable algorithms for calculating high-order the 3D Zernike moments are introduced and a voxel-based algorithm is developed that provides an accurate reconstruction image.
Computation of fluctuation scattering profiles via three-dimensional Zernike polynomials.
Based on the three-dimensional Zernike polynomial expansion models, a fast method to compute the theoretical fluctuation scattering profiles has been derived and these theoretical profiles have been validated against simulated results obtained from 300 000 scattering patterns for several representative biomolecular species.
Beyond Mapping Functions and Gradients
Mapping functions and gradients in GNSS and VLBI applications were introduced in the sixties and seventies to model the microwave propagation delays in the troposphere, and they were proven to be the


On the circle polynomials of Zernike and related orthogonal sets
The paper is concerned with the construction of polynomials in two variables, which form a complete orthogonal set for the interior of the unit circle and which are ‘invariant in form’ with respect
Algorithm for computation of Zernike polynomials expansion coefficients.
A numerically efficient algorithm for expanding a function in a series of Zernike polynomials is presented and shows that typically at least a fourfold improvement in computational speed can be expected in practical use.

Gaunt coefficients, the integrated products of three spherical harmonics, are widely used in several branches of physics. Here, I review the most recent methods to calculate them efficiently (i.e.
