Abstract

Conventional Hermite polynomials emerge in a great diversity of applications in mathematical physics, engineering, and related fields. However, in physical systems with higher degrees of freedom it will be of practical interest to extend the scalar Hermite functions to their matrix analogue. This work introduces various new generating functions for Hermite matrix polynomials and examines existence and convergence of their associated series expansion by using Mehler's formula for the general matrix case. Moreover, we derive interesting new relations for even- and odd-power summation in the generating-function expansion containing Hermite matrix polynomials. Some new results for the scalar case are also presented.
