Now we are in a position to formulate the aim of this paper. We wish to nd suh

q-extensions oftheHermite polynomials H

n

(x), whih satisfythefollowingrequirements:

1. They are polynomials in the variable x, whih obey a three-term reurrene relation; 2.

They are orthogonal on the whole real line R with respet to a ontinuous positive weight

funtion;3. In thelimitasq !1they oinide withtheHermitepolynomialsH

n (x).

Suha familyisofgreat interestfrom thepointofview ofpossibleappliationsin

math-ematialphysis. We remind thereaderthat thetwo mostfundamentalproblems in

nonrel-ativisti quantum mehanis, the harmoniosillator and the Coulomb system, are dened

on R 3

[7 ℄. Thus our goal is equivalent to having suh a q-deformed version of the linear

harmoniosillator, whih isstilldenedonthe wholereallineR and enjoystheontinuous

orthogonalitypropertyon R withrespetto a positiveweight funtion. 2

whih is a straightforward onsequene of the general denition of the q-shifted fatorial

The positivity of Jakson's q-exponential funtion E

obviousfromits denition(2.5): foritisrepresentedasaninnite sumofpositiveterms(or

4 Reurrene relation

The easiest wayto identifythe sequene (2.8) ( that is, to nd its appropriate nihe inthe

Askey-sheme of q-polynomialfamilies[4 ℄ ),is to derive a three-term reurrenerelation for

it. Sinean arbitrarypolynomialp

(x;q) and to nd then

(6)

Before starting this derivation we note that in what follows it proves onvenient to use

thefollowingform

L ()

n

(x;q)= (q +1 ;q) n (q;q) n n X k=0 q k(k+) (q +1 ;q) k n k q ( x) k (4.2)

uponusingtherelation

(q n ;q) k (q;q) k

=( 1) k

q

k(k 1)=2 nk n k q : (4.3)

Let usrst onsiderthease when nin (4.1) is even. Then from (2.8) and (2.3) we nd

that

H

2n+1

(x;q)+

2n (q)H

2n 1 (x;q)

=( 1) n (q 3=2 ;q) n x n X k=0 q k(k+1=2) (q 3=2 ;q) k n k q ( x 2 ) k + 2n

Thenextstepistoemploytherelation(3.5)inordertorewritethequotient(q 3=2 ;q) n =(q 3=2 ;q) k

fromthe rsttermin (4.4) as

(q 3=2 ;q) n (q 3=2 ;q) k = 1 q n+1=2 1 q k+1=2 (q 1=2 ;q) n (q 1=2 ;q) k : (4.5)

Intheseondtermin(4.4)oneanusetheevidentrelation(q 3=2 ;q) n 1 =(q 1=2 ;q) n =(1 q 1=2 )

and the same formula (3.5) for the fator (q 3=2

;q)

. Also, we reall the propertyof the

q-binomialoeÆient n 1 k q = 1 q n k 1 q n n k q : (4.6)

Puttingthisall together, we obtain

H

2n+1

(x;q)+

2n (q)H

2n 1 (x;q)

=( 1) n (q 1=2 ;q) n x n X k=0 q k(k+1=2) (q 1=2 ;q) k n k q ( x 2 ) k 1 q k+1=2 1 q n+1=2 2n (q) 1 q n k 1 q n : (4.7)

Theright-hand sideof(4.7) shouldmath with

H

2n

(x;q)=( 1) n (q 1=2 ;q) n n X k=0 q k(k 1=2) (q 1=2 ;q) k n k q ( x 2 ) k ; (4.8)

multipliedbya

2n

(q)x+b

2n

(q). ThismeansthattheoeÆient

2n

(q)an befoundfromthe

equation 1 q n+1=2 2n (q) 1 q n k 1 q n =d n (q)q k (1 q k+1=2

); (4.9)

whered

n

(q) is some k-independent fator. It is notdiÆult to verify that theonlysolution

ofthe equation(4.9) is

2n

(q)=1 q n

and d

n (q)=q

n

. Thus

H (x;q)+(1 q n

)H (x;q)=q n

(7)

Similarly,inthease of anodd nfrom (4.8) we have

H

2n+2

(x;q)+

2n+1 (q)H

2n (x;q)

=( 1) n+1 (q 1=2 ;q) n+1 n+1 X k=0 q k(k 1=2) (q 1=2 ;q) k

InthisaseitiseveneasiertondtheoeÆient

Consequently,

and,therefore, by (4.11) we obtain
