Abstract:
      We consider the problem of estimating the derivative of a function $f$ from its noisy version $f^{\delta}$ by using the derivatives of the partial sums of Fourier-Legendre series of $f^{\delta}$. Instead of the observation $L^2$ space, we perform the reconstruction of the derivative in a weighted $L^2$ space. This takes full advantage of the properties of Legendre polynomials and results in a slight improvement on the convergence order. Finally, we provide several numerical examples to demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed method.
