Abstract: Orthogonal polynomials corresponding to the weight function and defined on the positive real axis are constructed. Abscissas and weight factors for the associated Gaussian quadrature are then deduced (up to 12-point formulas). The stability of the algorithm used for this particular computation is discussed. An example is provided to test the efficiency of the new Gaussian rule.
