MathieuCharacteristicExponent

  • MathieuCharacteristicExponent[ a , q ] gives the characteristic exponent for Mathieu functions with characteristic value a and parameter q.
  • Mathematical function (see Section A.3.10).
  • All Mathieu functions have the form where has period and is the Mathieu characteristic exponent.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 3.2.12.
