Abstract

The Jacobi coefficients $c^{\ell}_{j}(\alpha,\beta)$ ($1\leq j\leq \ell$, $\alpha,\beta\gt -1$) are linked to the Maclaurin spectral expansion of the Schwartz kernel of functions of the Laplacian on a compact rank one symmetric space. It is proved that these coefficients can be computed by transforming the even derivatives of the the Jacobi polynomials $P_{k}^{(\alpha,\beta)}$ ($k\geq 0, \alpha,\beta\gt -1$) into a spectral sum associated with the Jacobi operator. The first few coefficients are explicitly computed and a direct trace interpretation of the Maclaurin coefficients is presented.
