Dear mecej4,

Thank you for the reference. I have read it but I am afraid that it does not help me. I have already got a routine to compute the associated Legendre Polynomials from Numerical Recipes; I have also already checked Abramowitz and Stegun, but I could not find a reference to the function that I need.

Cheers,
Guido
