3. As stated earlier, we have spherical harmonic functions (with much scope
>> for dev) we are yet to have elliptical and cylindrical harmonic function,
>> which may be developed.
> This sounds very doable. How much work do you think would be involved?
>> As Stefan so rightly pointed out, the function for spherical harmonic
function, sph_harm at present calls lpmn thus evaluating all orders <N. An
initial glance at the code and the algorithm gives me a feeling that it
would be very well possible to avoid that by maybe avoiding the dependence
Further, we can introduce ellipsoidal harmonic functions of first kind and
the second kind. I am confident about about the implementation of
ellipsoidal H function of first kind but don't know much about the second
kind. But I believe we can work it out in due course.And cylindrical
harmonics can be carried out using Bessel functions.
