Can you help me fixing the terminology problems you've noticed ? Can you help providing proofs ?
taking the "coefficients" of a "function" seems to be a meaningless statement and caught me off guard when I read it. You're taking the coefficients of the polynomials. Since you're never using L as a function, why word it such? In other words, you're never passing a value to L.

I would talk about a set of polynomials Pn where P0 = x and Pn = Pn-12-2 where n > 0, I'm no expert, so I may be abusing notation as well.

I haven't had time to look at more than a few of the conjectures you've posed, the first few seem like they can be proven (or disproven) without too much effort
