Let be orthogonal polynomials associated with the distribution on the interval . Also let

(for ) be a polynomial of order which is nonnegative in this interval. Then the orthogonal polynomials associated with the distribution can be represented in terms of the polynomials as

In the case of a zero of multiplicity , we replace the corresponding rows by the derivatives of order 0, 1, 2, ..., of the polynomials , ..., at .
