  • Abstract

Approximations using the generalized Laguerre polynomials are investigated in this paper. Error estimates for various orthogonal projections are established. These estimates generalize and improve previously published results on the Laguerre approximations. As an example of applications, a mixed Laguerre-Fourier spectral method for the Helmholtz equation in an exterior domain is analyzed and implemented. The proposed method enjoys optimal error estimates, and with suitable basis functions, leads to a sparse and symmetric linear system.
