language = {english},

abstract = {We show how Turan's inequality $P_n(x)^2-P_{n-1}(x)P_{n+1}(x)\geq0$ for Legendre Polynomials and related inequalities can be proven by means of a computer procedure. The use of this procedure simplifies the daily work with inequalities. For instance, we have found the stronger inequality $|x|P_n(x)^2-P_{n-1}(x)P_{n+1}(x)\geq0$ ($-1\leq x\leq 1$) effortlessly with the aid of our method},
