gives the radial spheroidal function of the first kind.


  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • The radial spheroidal functions satisfy the differential equation with the spheroidal eigenvalue given by SpheroidalEigenvalue[n,m,γ].
  • The are normalized according to the MeixnerSchäfke scheme.
  • SpheroidalS1 can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • SpheroidalS1 automatically threads over lists.
