Generalized Equidistant Chebyshev Polynomials and Alexander Knot Invariants
We introduce the generalized equidistant Chebyshev polynomials T(k,h) of kind k of hyperkind h, where k, h are positive integers. They are obtained by a generalization of standard and monic Chebyshev polynomials of the first and second kinds. This generalization is fulfilled in two directions. The horizontal generalization is made by introducing hyperkind ℎ and expanding it to infinity. The vertical generalization proposes expanding kind k to infinity with the help of the method of equidistant coefficients. Some connections of these polynomials with the Alexander knot and link polynomial invariants are investigated.
