# MathieuSPrime

 MathieuSPrimegives the derivative with respect to z of the odd Mathieu function with characteristic value a and parameter q.
• Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
• For certain special arguments, MathieuSPrime automatically evaluates to exact values.

 Applications   (1)
Mathieu functions arise as solutions of the Laplace equation in an ellipse:
This defines the square of the gradient (the local kinetic energy of a vibrating membrane):
This finds a zero:
This plots the absolute value of the gradient of an eigenfunction:
