Pagination or Media Count:
A method of calculating the eigenvalues and the expansion coefficients of spheroidal wave functions for the prolate and oblate case using a high-speed computer is presented. Special emphasis is placed on a new explanation of the role the parameter n plays in the numerical determination of eigenvalues. Curves and tables of eigenvalues are included.
