Description

This project requires the student to investigate properties enjoyed by special solutions to this equation known as Chebyshev Polynomials, while also learning something about the person for whom the equation is named.

Finally, a similar equation is introduced and the student is tasked to find necessary and sufficient conditions on two parameters which will guarantee two finite polynomial solutions to this equation.
