Abstract We present a code to evaluate prolate (P^m _n (x), Q^m _n(x); n ≥ m, x > 1) and oblate (P^m _n (ix), Q^m _n(ix); n ≥ m, x > 0) spheroidal harmonics, that is, spherical harmonics (n and m integers) for real arguments larger than one and for purely imaginary arguments. We start from the known values (in closed form) of P^m _(m+1)and P^m ... Title of program: DPROH, DOBLH Catalogue Id: ADHD_v1_0 Nature of problem We include two codes in order to evaluate: <ol> <li> Prolate spheroidal harmonics (subroutine DPROH) <li> Oblate spheroidal harmonics (subroutine DOBLH) </ol> The two codes evaluate spheroidal harmonics of the first and second kinds for a given order m, from the lowest (positive) degree (n = m) to a maximum degree n = m + NMAX in the same run. The algorithms find their application in problems with prolate and oblate spheroidal geometries respectively. We show as an example the application of the ...
