EllipticCylindrical

As of Version 9.0, vector analysis functionality is built into the Wolfram Language »

EllipticCylindrical

represents the elliptic cylindrical coordinate system with default variables Uu, Vv, and Zz and default parameter value 1.

EllipticCylindrical[u,v,z]

represents the elliptic cylindrical coordinate system with variables u, v, and z and default parameter value 1.

EllipticCylindrical[u,v,z,a]

represents the elliptic cylindrical coordinate system with variables u, v, and z and parameter a.
