Prolate spheroidal wave functions, because of their many remarkable properties leading to new applications, have recently experienced an upsurge of interest. They may be defined as eigenfunctions of either a differential operator or an integral operator (as observed by Slepian in the 1960’s). There are various ways of calculating their values based on both approaches. The standard one uses an approximation based on Legendre polynomials, which, however, is valid only on a finite interval.
