Product formula for Hermite polynomials
Posted: Jan 19, 2013 4:38 PM

I'm looking for a formula which expresses the product of two Hermite polynomials as a linear combination of Hermite polynomials, i.e. $a_{m,n,i}$ verifying
$$H_m(x)H_n(x)=\sum \limits_{i=0}^{m+n} a_{m,n,i} H_i(x).$$
for all nonegative $m,n$.

If such a formula is known, I'd be most appreciative of a citation or link describing it.

Thanks for any help!
