§29.10 Lamé Functions with Imaginary Periods

The substitutions

29.10.1 h=ν(ν+1)h,
29.10.2 z=i(zKiK),

transform (29.2.1) into

29.10.3 d2wdz2+(hν(ν+1)k2sn2(z,k))w=0.

In consequence, the functions

29.10.4 𝐸𝑐ν2m(i(zKiK),k2),

are solutions of (29.2.1). The first and the fourth functions have period 2iK; the second and the third have period 4iK.

For these results and further information see Erdélyi et al. (1955, §15.5.2).
