ProlateSpheroidal

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

ProlateSpheroidal

represents the prolate spheroidal coordinate system with default variables Xxi, Eeta, and Pphi and default parameter value 1.

ProlateSpheroidal[ξ,η,ϕ]

represents the prolate spheroidal coordinate system with variables ξ, η, and ϕ and default parameter value 1.

ProlateSpheroidal[ξ,η,ϕ,a] represents the prolate spheroidal coordinate system with variables ξ, η, and ϕ and parameter a.
