Abstract. Given a symmetrized Sobolev inner product of order N, the corresponding sequence
of monic orthogonal polynomials {Qn} satisfies Q2n(x) = Pn(x2), Q2n+1(x) = xRn(x2) for certain
sequences of monic polynomials {Pn} and {Rn}. In this paper we consider the particular case when
all the measures that define the symmetrized Sobolev inner product are equal, absolutely continuous
and semiclassical. Under such restrictions, we give explicit algebraic relations between the sequences
{Pn} and {Rn}, as well as higherorder recurrence relations that they satisfy.
Key words. Sobolev inner product, orthogonal polynomials, semiclassical linear functionals,
recurrence relation, symmetrization process
