[tex]\Delta=\frac{\partial^2}{\partial \rho^2}+\frac{1}{\rho}\frac{\partial}{\partial \rho}+\frac{1}{\rho^2}\frac{\partial^2}{\partial \varphi^2}+\frac{\partial^2}{\partial z^2} [/tex]

I am confused. I I have spherical symmetric function f(r) then

[tex]\Delta f(r)=\frac{d^2}{dr^2}f(r)+\frac{2}{r}\frac{d}{dr}f(r)[/tex]

If I worked on function ##f(r)## with Laplacian in cylindrical coordinates. I suppose that [tex]f(r)=f(\rho)[/tex] but then factor ##2## is problem.
