N − 1 is divisible by pk . If C(k + 1) is degenerate, pk is orthogonal to itself. Notice that this is not possible when the weight function is positive. If one considers the set of polynomials pk of degree dk belonging to the sets C(k) which are nondegenerate, they satisfy a three-term recurrence but with different coefficients as in the positive case. We have for k = 2, 3, . . 11) i=0 and d1 −1 p0 (λ) ≡ 1, p1 (λ) = α1 λd1 + β1,i λi p0 (λ). i=0 The coefficient of pk−1 contains powers of λ depending on the difference of the degrees of the polynomials in the nondegenerate cases.

1 · · · βi−1 δi · · · δk Since, for j ≥ i, we have (Jk−1 )i,j = ui vj , we obtain the result. ✷ The diagonal elements of the inverse of Jk can also be obtained using twisted factorizations. 7 Let l be a fixed index and ωj the diagonal elements of the corresponding twisted factorization of Jk . Then, (Jk−1 )l,l = 1 . ωl Proof. This is obtained by solving Jk y = el and looking at the lth element of the solution. Since all the components of el are zero except the lth one, starting from the top and the bottom, all the components of the solution of the first phase are zero except for the lth one which is 1/ωl .

Later in this book we will need some components of the eigenvectors of Jk , particularly the first and the last ones. We recall the following results whose proof can be found, for instance, in . 4 Let χj,k (λ) be the determinant of Jj,k − λI. The first components of the eigenvectors z i of Jk are (z1i )2 = (k) χ2,k (θi ) (k) , χ1,k (θi ) that is (z1i )2 = (k) θi (k) θi (k) (2,k) − θ1 (k) − θ1 ··· − θi−1 θi(2,k) − θi(k) θi − θi−1 θi+1 − θi (k) (2,k) (2,k) θi (k) (k) (k) ··· (k) θk−1 − θi (k) (k) θk − θi .
