Abstract : SYMAP 2, an operational computer-based algebraic symbol manipulator developed at the Ballistic Research Laboratory, has been applied as a research tool. Its use in testing a conjecture on the convexity of Turan's determinant for the Legendre polynomials is described. An analytic proof of the conjecture and an application are also given. (Author)
