THE THEORY  OF  THE  HELMHOLTZ  RESONATOR
The first two series of P's on the right of (24) and (29) become div when /A = 1, or 0 = 0.    To evaluate them we have
,(1     0 l    a^  ,l- = l + gP1 + a'P,4...,.............
V i 1 — 2a cos v + a2}
so that                l+Pi + P2+...=—r—5-----m = o   •   1/5..........
V(2 — 2 cos u)     Zsm^v
Again, by integration of (30),
^      l    3      2    "'    J 0 A/J 1 — 2acos 6 + a2}
= log [a — cos 0 + V{1 - 2a cos # + a2}] - log [1 — cos 0] *,
so that           1 H- £PX + £ P2 + ... = log (1 + sin \$0) - log sin \Q..........<
In much the same way we may sum the third series ^,n~1Pn.    We
p + ap0 + a2p3 + ... =            L-------       1

We denote the right-hand member of this equation by/ and differe it with respect to p.
Thus

On integration
The constant is to be found by'putting p = 0, 0 = £TT.    In this case

When 6 is small, the more important part is form given by (4), the result applies to the exterior surface f the sphere.
