$\displaystyle {\displaystyle {\tilde w}(x;a,b|q)\AlSalamChihara{n}@{x}{a}{b}{q} {}=\left(\frac{q-1}{2}\right)^nq^{\frac{1}{4}n(n-1)} \left(D_q\right)^n\left[{\tilde w}(x;aq^{\frac{1}{2}n},bq^{\frac{1}{2}n}|q)\right] }$

## Substitution(s)

$\displaystyle {\displaystyle {\tilde w}(x;a,b|q):=\frac{w(x;a,b|q)}{\sqrt{1-x^2}}}$ &

$\displaystyle {\displaystyle w(x):=w(x;a,b|q)=\left|\frac{\qPochhammer{\expe^{2\iunit\theta}}{q}{\infty}} {\qPochhammer{a\expe^{\iunit\theta},b\expe^{\iunit\theta}}{q}{\infty}}\right|^2 =\frac{h(x,1)h(x,-1)h(x,q^{\frac{1}{2}})h(x,-q^{\frac{1}{2}})}{h(x,a)h(x,b)}}$ &
$\displaystyle {\displaystyle h(x,\alpha):=\prod_{k=0}^{\infty}\left(1-2\alpha xq^k+\alpha^2q^{2k}\right) =\qPochhammer{\alpha\expe^{\iunit\theta},\alpha\expe^{-\iunit\theta}}{q}{\infty}}$ &

$\displaystyle {\displaystyle x=\cos@@{\theta}}$
