Bivariate Legendre series.
Defined as:
\[P_{n_m}(x,y) = \sum_{n,m=0}^{n=d,m=d}C_{nm} L_n(x ) L_m(y)\]where
L_n(x)
andL_m(y)
are Legendre polynomials.For explanation of

see Notes regarding usage of domain and window. Parameters
 x_degree
int
degree in x
 y_degree
int
degree in y
 x_domain
tuple
orNone
, optional domain of the x independent variable
 y_domain
tuple
orNone
, optional domain of the y independent variable
 x_window
tuple
orNone
, optional range of the x independent variable If None, it is set to (1, 1) Fitters will remap the domain to this window
 y_window
tuple
orNone

 Other Parameters
 fixed
a
dict
, optional A dictionary
{parameter_name: boolean}
of parameters to not be varied during fitting. True means the parameter is held fixed. Alternatively thefixed
property of a parameter may be used. tied
dict
, optional A dictionary
{parameter_name: callable}
of parameters which are linked to some other parameter. The dictionary values are callables providing the linking relationship. Alternatively thetied
property of a parameter may be used. bounds
dict
, optional A dictionary
{parameter_name: value}
of lower and upper bounds of parameters. Keys are parameter names. Values are a list or a tuple of length 2 giving the desired range for the parameter. Alternatively, themin
andmax
properties of a parameter may be used. eqcons
list
, optional A list of functions of length
n
such thateqcons[j](x0,*args) == 0.0
in a successfully optimized problem. ineqcons
list
, optional A list of functions of length
n
such thatieqcons[j](x0,*args) >= 0.0
is a successfully optimized problem.

Notes
Model formula:
\[P(x) = \sum_{i=0}^{i=n}C_{i} * L_{i}(x)\]where
L_{i}
is the corresponding Legendre polynomial.This model does not support the use of units/quantities, because each term in the sum of Legendre polynomials is a polynomial in x  since the coefficients within each Legendre polynomial are fixed, we can’t use quantities for x since the units would not be compatible. For example, the third Legendre polynomial (P2) is 1.5x^20.5, but if x was specified with units, 1.5x^2 and 0.5 would have incompatible units.
