Matlab software are presented for generating Gauss–Turán quadrature rules for the Laguerre and Hermite weight functions to arbitrarily high accuracy. This is accomplished by the Newton–Kantorovich method, using initial approximations that are sufficiently accurate to be capable of producing n-point quadrature formulae for n as large as 42 in the case of the Laguerre weight function, and 90 in the case of the Hermite weight function.
