The expansion of Lamé functions into series of associated Legendre functions of the second kind

  • B. D. Sleeman (a1)

Introduction. In this paper, a study is made of the solutions of Lamé's differential equation as series of associated Legendre functions. The particular feature studied is the representation of the second solution corresponding to the case when the first solution is a Lamé polynomial.
