  • This paper deals with monic orthogonal polynomials generated by a Geronimus canonical spectral transformation of the Laguerre classical measure, i.e., 1/x - cx(alpha)e(-x)dx + N delta(x - c) for x is an element of [0, infinity), alpha > -1, a free parameter N is an element of R+ and a shift c < 0. We analyze the asymptotic behavior (both strong and relative to classical Laguerre polynomials) of these orthogonal polynomials as n tends to infinity.
