Consider code
syms x
n = 4;
a = -0.5;
It produces following output
- (5*x^4)/8 + (3*x^2)/4 - 1/8
which is not correct. Expected result according to theory of orthogonal polynomials is
8*x^4 - 8*x^2 + 1
i.e. Chebyshev polynomial
What I am missing?

Please refer to this article to understand the relationships between Gegenbauer and Chebyshev polynomials.
You will find that the relation between them is as follows:
T(n,x) = (n/2) * G(n,0,x)
Hope this helps.

I understand that the relationship between the two polynomials in the previous article is incorrect and we apologize for the same. This is a documentation bug and we're currently working on it.
Meanwhile, as a workaround, the correct mathematical expression for the relation between GegenbauerC and ChebyshevT polynomials can be found in Eq 38 in, which says
chebyshevT(n,x) = (1/epsilon) * lim a->0 {(n+a)/a}*gegenbauerC(n,a,x)
where epsilon = 1 for n = 0, and epsilon = 2 otherwise.
You may refer to this rule for solving the limit and hence the equation.
Hope this helps.
