Laplace and Poisson Equation in oblate and prolate spheroids

  1. Aug 15, 2008 #1
    Hi everyone,
    I have been trying to solve both laplace and poisson equation using method of separation of variable but is giving me a hard time.
    Pls can anyone refer me to any text book that solve this problem in great detail?

    Morse and Feshbach solve these problems in all separable coordinate systems in their books Methods of Theoretical Physics.
