## Usage:  cheb (n, x)
##
## Returns the value of the nth-order Chebyshev polynomial calculated at
## the point x. The Chebyshev polynomials are defined by the equations:
##
##           / cos(n acos(x),    |x| <= 1
##   Tn(x) = |
##           \ cosh(n acosh(x),  |x| > 1
##
## If x is a vector, the output is a vector of the same size, where each
## element is calculated as y(i) = Tn(x(i)).

  endif
                        # avoid resizing latencies
