### Main points of Legendre differential equation?

The Legendre differential equation is the second-order ordinary differential equation(1) which can be rewritten(2) The above form is a special case of the so-called "associated Legendre differential equation" corresponding to the case . The Legendre differential equation has regular singular points at , 1, and . If the variable is replaced by , then the Legendre differential equation becomes(3) derived below for the associated () case. Since the Legendre differential equation is a second-order ordinary…

### What was Adrien-Marie Legendre famous for?

Adrien-Marie Legendre is famous for laying the groundwork of many different mathematical problems in such disparate fields as statistics, number theory, and differential equations. He invented the statistical tool known as the least squares method and almost single-handedly solved elliptic functions and elliptic integrals. Additionally, he solved what is now known as the Legendre equation; an equation that arises in electrostatic theory and quantum mechanics, among other places, and whose solutions are called the Legendre…

### Has Mezcal has been called a substitute for absinthe without the wormwood?

No, absinthe substitutes are generally Aniseed type drinks, with a flavor profile somewhat similar to absinthe. Some historic brands in USA that dated from the Post-Prohibition era were Mohawk's Abson, Jung & Wulff's Milky Way, Dubouchett Alstina, Solari's Green Opal, and Legendre Herbsaint. Legendre Herbsaint is the longest surviving Absinthe substitute made in the USA, which will celebrate it's seventy fifth anniversary in 2009.
