In this paper we establish Turán type inequalities for Jacobi-Dunkl polynomials. These complete an earlier result proven by G. Gasper in [1], for Jacobi polynomials.

The famous result of P. Turán ^{ 2}, established in 1950, is the following inequality:

where is the Legendre polynomial of degree This inequality has found much attention and several authors have deduced analogous results for other classical polynomials and special functions. For details we refer the interested reader to ^{ 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17} and their references. There are many applications of these results, for example in numerical integration, information theory, economic theory and biophysics (see ^{ 18}).

Legendre polynomials belong to the class of Jacobi polynomials, which are studied in detail in ^{ 19, 20, 21}. For and let

We recall in the second section, some basic properties of Jacobi and Jacobi-Dunkl polynomials. We also present several explicit forms of these polynomials. Finally, we establish, in the last section, some inequalities of Turán type involving and (Theorems 3.4, 3.7, 3.9). More precisely,

with equality only for .

Then, we deduce that

In the sequel, we take and we denote by . We drop the exponents when there is no confusion.

In this section we recall some properties for Jacobi and Jacobi-Dunkl polynomials useful to get inequalities of Turán type which occur in the study of certain entire functions. These inequalities give an idea about the size of the gap, estimates and monotonicity properties of some special functions.
