Evaluation of associated Legendre functions off the cut and parabolic cylinder functions

Javier Segura and Amparo Gil


We review a set of algorithms to evaluate associated Legendre functions off the cut; in particular, we consider prolate spheroidal, oblate spheroidal and toroidal harmonics. A similar scheme can be applied to other families of special functions like Bessel and parabolic cylinder functions; we will describe the corresponding algorithm for the evaluation of parabolic cylinder functions.
