Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is the construction of explicit Gauss-Turán quadrature formulas: they are relative to some classes of weight functions, which have the peculiarity that the corresponding $s$-orthogonal polynomials, of the same degree, are independent of $s$. These weights too are introduced and discussed here. Moreover, highest-precision quadratures for evaluating Fourier-Chebyshev coefficients are given.
