Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Old name was: A triangular sequence of coefficients Chebyshev T(x,n) as Besicovitch-Ursell polynomials (fractal orthogonal functions): f(x,n) = ChebyshevT[n,2^n*x]/2^(s*n).

Row sums are: 1, 2, 31, 2024, 522241, 536215712, 2198218022911, 36024948845706368, 2361111184527977349121, 618964706995596541734949376, 649035559893095618486323487178751, ... (cf A197320)

The integration of these functions is alternating orthogonal as are a lot of secondary Chebyshev polynomial sets: TableForm[Table[Integrate[(ChebyshevT[n, 2^n*x]/2^(s*n))*(ChebyshevT[m, 2^m*x]/2^(s*m))/Sqrt[1 -x^2], {x, -1, 1}], {n, 0, 10}, {m, 0, 10}]].

The fractal dimensional scaling here acts as a constant during integration.

These "biscuit" type functions are closely related to Weierstrass fractal and are usually constructed with a unit square "cartoon".

Graphing the polynomials shows that it is the "even" functions that are orthogonal. Orthogonal fractal systems are found in quantum fractals.
