# 橢圓柱坐標系

## 基本定義

${\displaystyle x=a\ \cosh \mu \ \cos \nu }$
${\displaystyle y=a\ \sinh \mu \ \sin \nu }$
${\displaystyle z=z}$

${\displaystyle \mu }$ 的等值曲線形成了橢圓，而 ${\displaystyle \nu }$ 的等值曲線則形成了雙曲線

${\displaystyle {\frac {x^{2}}{a^{2}\cosh ^{2}\mu }}+{\frac {y^{2}}{a^{2}\sinh ^{2}\mu }}=\cos ^{2}\nu +\sin ^{2}\nu =1}$
${\displaystyle {\frac {x^{2}}{a^{2}\cos ^{2}\nu }}-{\frac {y^{2}}{a^{2}\sin ^{2}\nu }}=\cosh ^{2}\mu -\sinh ^{2}\mu =1}$

## 標度因子

${\displaystyle h_{\mu }=h_{\nu }=a{\sqrt {\sinh ^{2}\mu +\sin ^{2}\nu }}}$
${\displaystyle h_{z}=1}$

${\displaystyle dV=a^{2}\left(\sinh ^{2}\mu +\sin ^{2}\nu \right)d\mu d\nu dz}$
${\displaystyle \nabla ^{2}\Phi ={\frac {1}{a^{2}\left(\sinh ^{2}\mu +\sin ^{2}\nu \right)}}\left({\frac {\partial ^{2}\Phi }{\partial \mu ^{2}}}+{\frac {\partial ^{2}\Phi }{\partial \nu ^{2}}}\right)+{\frac {\partial ^{2}\Phi }{\partial z^{2}}}}$

## 第二種定義

${\displaystyle d_{1}+d_{2}=2a\sigma }$
${\displaystyle d_{1}-d_{2}=2a\tau }$

${\displaystyle d_{1}=a(\sigma +\tau )}$
${\displaystyle d_{2}=a(\sigma -\tau )}$

${\displaystyle x=a\sigma \tau }$
${\displaystyle y^{2}=a^{2}\left(\sigma ^{2}-1\right)\left(1-\tau ^{2}\right)}$

## 第二種標度因子

${\displaystyle h_{\sigma }=a{\sqrt {\frac {\sigma ^{2}-\tau ^{2}}{\sigma ^{2}-1}}}}$
${\displaystyle h_{\tau }=a{\sqrt {\frac {\sigma ^{2}-\tau ^{2}}{1-\tau ^{2}}}}}$
${\displaystyle h_{z}=1}$

${\displaystyle dV=a^{2}{\frac {\sigma ^{2}-\tau ^{2}}{\sqrt {\left(\sigma ^{2}-1\right)\left(1-\tau ^{2}\right)}}}d\sigma d\tau dz}$
${\displaystyle \nabla ^{2}\Phi ={\frac {1}{a^{2}\left(\sigma ^{2}-\tau ^{2}\right)}}\left[{\sqrt {\sigma ^{2}-1}}{\frac {\partial }{\partial \sigma }}\left({\sqrt {\sigma ^{2}-1}}{\frac {\partial \Phi }{\partial \sigma }}\right)+{\sqrt {1-\tau ^{2}}}{\frac {\partial }{\partial \tau }}\left({\sqrt {1-\tau ^{2}}}{\frac {\partial \Phi }{\partial \tau }}\right)\right]+{\frac {\partial ^{2}\Phi }{\partial z^{2}}}}$
