Abstract:

The theory of oblate spheroidal wave functions is briefly reviewed and a list of literature references to applications of oblate spheroidal theory is furnished. Formulas useful for the numerical calculation of oblate radial functions of the first and second type, together with their first derivatives, are derived and explained. A step-by-step procedure of computation is then outlined together with an indication of precision obtained and method of checking. Finally a computer-printout tabulation of 48,600 entries comprising radial functions and their derivatives is reproduced. The range of parameters m, l, g, and xi covered in these tables is m 012, l 9118, g 0.10.110.28, and xi 0.10.10.9. Author
