In a previous discussion of a paper by Carrus and Treuenfels (CT), a difference test indicated that some of the early zeros of the associated Legendre function Pn^cos 0) = 0 as a function of n were incorrect (MTAC, v. 5,. The investigation of the present article also reveals some errors. The authors give an alternative proof of an equation due to Macdonald2 for determining the early zeros of P"m(cos 0) = 0 where 0 is near t. For m = 1, 6 = 165°, this formula gives 1.035 as an approximation todoi:10.1090/s0025-5718-52-99401-5 fatcat:esueuywgqbbo7bus53cc3fpjry
