Book Review: The Theory of Spherical and Ellipsoidal Harmonics

Philip Franklin
1932 Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society  
This is a comprehensive treatise on the properties of the ordinary and generalized functions of Legendre, with a final chapter on functions of Lamé. The work is all that one would expect from a writer who has himself made many original contributions to the subject, and whose style as an expositor is well known through his text book on real variables. As an up-to-date handbook of spherical harmonics, the new book will undoubtedly be welcomed by both pure and applied mathematicians, and become the standard reference in its field. PHILIP FRANKLIN
