SpheroidalPS[n, m, , z]
gives the angular spheroidal function PS_(n,m)(gamma,z) of the first kind.
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • The angular spheroidal functions satisfy the differential equation with the spheroidal eigenvalue lambda given by SpheroidalEigenvalue[n, m, ].
  • SpheroidalPS[n, m, a, , z] gives spheroidal functions of type a. The types are specified as for LegendreP.
  • For certain special arguments, SpheroidalPS automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • SpheroidalPS can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
