SpheroidalEigenvalue[n, m, ]
gives the spheroidal eigenvalue with degree and order .


  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • The spheroidal eigenvalues for successive correspond to the successive values of for which there exist normalizable solutions to the differential equation .
  • SpheroidalEigenvalue[n, m, 0]is equal to .
  • For certain special arguments, SpheroidalEigenvalue automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • SpheroidalEigenvalue can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • SpheroidalEigenvalue automatically threads over lists.
