In this paper, we explore the connection between the Hankel transform, Riordan arrays and orthogonal polynomials. For this purpose, we evaluate the Hankel transform of generalized trinomial coefficients, as a closed-form expression, using the method based on the orthogonal polynomials. Since the generalized trinomial coefficients are generalization of several integer sequences, obtained expression is also applicable in these cases.We also showed that the coefficient array of corresponding orthogonal polynomials can be represented in terms of Riordan arrays, which provides the LDLT decomposition of the Hankel matrix. Moreover, we consider the row sums of the inverse of coefficient array matrix and evaluate its Hankel transform.
