Abstract: We prove an inequality of the form \[ \|f^{(j)}\|^2\leq A\|f^{(m)}\|^2+B\|f\|^2\] for polynomials of degree $n$ and any fixed $0<j<m\leq n$. Here $\|\cdot \|$ is the $L_2$-norm on $(-\infty ,\infty )$ with a weight $e^{-t^2}$. The coefficients $A$ and $B$ are given explicitly and depend on $j,m$ and $n$ only. The equality is attained for the Hermite orthogonal polynomials $H_n(t)$.
