## Spheroid-Ring Systems

Through a research collaboration at the Université de Bordeaux, B. Basillais & J. -M. Huré (2019), MNRAS, 487, 4504-4509 have published a paper titled, Rigidly Rotating, Incompressible Spheroid-Ring Systems: New Bifurcations, Critical Rotations, and Degenerate States.

## Exterior Gravitational Potential of Toroids

J. -M. Huré, B. Basillais, V. Karas, A. Trova, & O. Semerák (2020), MNRAS, 494, 5825-5838 have published a paper titled, The Exterior Gravitational Potential of Toroids. Here we examine how their work relates to the published work by C.-Y. Wong (1973, Annals of Physics, 77, 279), which we have separately discussed in detail.

### Their Presentation

#### Notation

The major and minor radii of the torus surface ("shell") are, respectively, Rc and b, and their ratio is denoted,

$~e \equiv \frac{b}{R_c} \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §2, p. 5826, Eq. (1)

The authors work in cylindrical coordinates, $~(R, Z)$, whereas we refer to this same coordinate-pair as, $~(\varpi, z)$. The quantity,

 $~\Delta^2$ $~\equiv$ $~ [R + (R_c + b\cos\theta_H)]^2 + [Z - b\sin\theta_H]^2 \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §2, p. 5826, Eqs. (1) & (7)

We have affixed the subscript "H" to their meridional-plane angle, θ, to clarify that it has a different coordinate-base definition from the meridional-plane angle, θ, that appears in our discussion of Wong's (1973) work, below. The subscript "0" is used in the case of an infinitesimally thin hoop $~(b \rightarrow 0)$, that is to say,

 $~\Delta_0^2$ $~=$ $~ [R + R_c]^2 + Z^2 \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §3, p. 5827, Eq. (13)

Generally, the argument (modulus) of the complete elliptic integral functions is,

 $~k_H$ $~=$ $~ \frac{2}{\Delta}\biggl[ R (R_c + b\cos\theta_H) \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §2, p. 5826, Eq. (4)

(Again, we have affixed the subscript "H" in order to differentiate from the modulus employed by Wong (1973).) And in the case of an infinitesimally thin hoop $~(b\rightarrow 0)$,

 $~[k^2_H]_0$ $~=$ $~ \frac{4R R_c}{\Delta_0^2} \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §3, p. 5827, Eq. (12)

#### Key Finding

On an initial reading, it appears as though the most relevant section of the Huré, et al. (2020) paper is §8 titled, The Solid Torus. They write the gravitational potential in terms of the series expansion,

 $~\Psi_\mathrm{grav}(\vec{r})$ $~\approx$ $~ \Psi_0 + \sum\limits_{n=1}^N \Psi_n \, ,$

Huré, et al. (2020), §7, p. 5831, Eq. (42)

where, after setting $~M_\mathrm{tot} = 2\pi^2\rho_0 b^2 R_c$ and acknowledging that $~V_{0,0} = 1 \, ,$ we can write,

 $~\Psi_0$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{GM_\mathrm{tot}}{r} \biggl[ \frac{r}{\Delta_0} \cdot \frac{2}{\pi} \boldsymbol{K}(k_0) \biggr]$

Huré, et al. (2020), §8, p. 5832, Eqs. (52) & (53)

and,

 $~\frac{1}{e^2} \biggl[ \Psi_1 + \Psi_2 \biggr]$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{G\pi \rho_0 R_c b^2}{4 (k')^2 \Delta_0^3} \biggl\{ [\Delta_0^2 - 2R_c(R_c + R)]\boldsymbol{E}(k) - (k')^2 \Delta_0^2 \boldsymbol{K}(k) \biggr\} \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §8, p. 5832, Eq. (54)

Note that the argument of the elliptic integral functions is,

 $~k$ $~\equiv$ $~ \frac{2\sqrt{\varpi R}}{\Delta}$ where, $~\Delta$ $~\equiv$ $~ \biggl[ (R + \varpi)^2 + (Z-z)^2 \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

Huré, et al. (2020), §2, p. 5826, Eqs. (4) & (5)

#### Setup

From our accompanying discussion of Wong's (1973) derivation, the exterior potential is given by the expression,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -D_0 (\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)^{1 / 2} ~\sum_{n=0}^{\mathrm{nmax}} \epsilon_n \cos(n\theta) C_n(\cosh\eta_0)P_{n-\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh\eta) \, ,$

where,

 $~D_0$ $~\equiv$ $~ \frac{2^{3/2} }{3\pi^2} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] = \frac{2^{3/2} }{3\pi^2} \biggl[\frac{(R^2 - d^2)^{3 / 2}}{d^2 R} \biggr] \, ,$ $~C_n(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~\equiv$ $~(n+\tfrac{1}{2})Q_{n+\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) Q_{n - \frac{1}{2}}^2(\cosh \eta_0) - (n - \tfrac{3}{2}) Q_{n - \frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0)~Q^2_{n + \frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) \,$

and where, in terms of the major ( R ) and minor ( d ) radii of the torus — or their ratio, ε ≡ d/R,

 $~\cosh\eta_0$ $~=$ $~\frac{R}{d} = \frac{1}{\epsilon} \, ,$ $~\sinh\eta_0$ $~=$ $~\frac{a}{d} = \frac{1}{d}\biggl[ R^2 - d^2 \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \frac{1}{\epsilon} \biggl[1 - \epsilon^2 \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

These expressions incorporate a number of basic elements of a toroidal coordinate system. In what follows, we will also make use of the following relations:

Once the primary scale factor, $~a$, has been specified, the illustration shown at the bottom of this inset box — see also our accompanying set of similar figures used by other researchers — helps in explaining how transformations can be made between any two of the referenced coordinate pairs: $~(\varpi, z)$, $~(\eta, \theta)$, $~(r_1, r_2)$.

 $~\varpi$ $~=$ $~\frac{a\sinh\eta}{(\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)}$ $~\Rightarrow ~$ $~\cos\theta$ $~=$ $~\cosh\eta - \frac{a\sinh\eta}{\varpi}$ $~z - Z_0$ $~=$ $~\frac{a\sin\theta}{(\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)}$ $~\Rightarrow ~$ $~\sin\theta$ $~=$ $~\frac{(z - Z_0)}{\varpi} \cdot \sinh\eta$

Given that (sin2θ + cos2θ) = 1, we have,

 $~1$ $~=$ $~ \biggl[ \frac{(z - Z_0)}{\varpi} \cdot \sinh\eta \biggr]^2 + \biggl[\cosh\eta - \frac{a\sinh\eta}{\varpi}\biggr]^2$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~ \coth\eta$ $~=$ $~ \frac{1}{2a\varpi}\biggl[\varpi^2 + a^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 \biggr] \, .$

We deduce as well that,

 $~\frac{2}{\coth\eta + 1}$ $~=$ $~ \frac{4a\varpi}{(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2} \, ,$        and, $~\sinh\eta + \cosh\eta$ $~=$ $~ \frac{\varpi^2 + a^2 + (z - Z_0)^2}{(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2} \, .$

Given the definitions,

 $~r_1^2$ $~=$ $~(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 \, ,$ $~r_2^2$ $~=$ $~(\varpi - a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 \, ,$

we can use the transformations,

 $~\varpi$ $~=$ $~\frac{(r_1^2 - r_2^2)}{4a}$     and, $~(z - Z_0)^2$ $~=$ $~r_2^2 - \frac{1}{16a^2}\biggl[ r_1^2 - r_2^2 - 4a^2 \biggr]^2 \, ,$     or, $~(z - Z_0)^2$ $~=$ $~r_1^2 - \frac{1}{16a^2}\biggl[ r_1^2 - r_2^2 + 4a^2 \biggr]^2 \, .$

Or we can use the transformations,

 $~\eta$ $~=$ $~\ln \biggl(\frac{r_1}{r_2}\biggr) \, ,$ $~\cos\theta$ $~=$ $~\frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2 - 4a^2}{2r_1 r_2} \, .$

Additional potentially useful relations can be found in an accompanying chapter wherein we present a variety of basic elements of a toroidal coordinate system.

#### Leading (n = 0) Term

##### Wong's Expression

Now, from our separate derivation we have,

 $~P_{-1 / 2}(\cosh\eta)$ $~=$ $~ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi}~ (\sinh\eta)^{-1 / 2} Q_{-1 / 2}(\coth\eta) \, .$

And if we make the function-argument substitution, $~z \rightarrow \coth\eta$, in the "Key Equation,"

 $~Q_{-\frac{1}{2}}(z)$ $~=$ $~ \sqrt{ \frac{2}{z+1} } ~K\biggl( \sqrt{ \frac{2}{z+1}} \biggr)$ Abramowitz & Stegun (1995), p. 337, eq. (8.13.3)

we can write,

 $~P_{-1 / 2}(\cosh\eta)$ $~=$ $~ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi}~ (\sinh\eta)^{-1 / 2} ~k \boldsymbol{K}(k) \, ,$

where, from above, we recognize that,

$~ k \equiv \biggl[ \frac{2}{\coth\eta + 1} \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \biggl[ \frac{4a\varpi}{(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

So, the leading (n = 0) term gives,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W0}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -D_0 (\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)^{1 / 2} ~C_0(\cosh\eta_0)P_{-\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh\eta)$ $~=$ $~ -D_0~C_0(\cosh\eta_0) \biggl[ \frac{a \sinh\eta}{\varpi} \biggr]^{1 / 2} ~\frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi}~ (\sinh\eta)^{-1 / 2} ~k \boldsymbol{K}(k)$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{D_0~C_0(\cosh\eta_0)}{\pi} \biggl[ \frac{2a }{\varpi} \biggr]^{1 / 2} ~ k \boldsymbol{K}(k)$ $~=$ $~ - C_0(\cosh\eta_0) \cdot \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] \frac{a}{ [ (\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 ]^{1 / 2} } \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k) \, .$
##### Thin-Ring Evaluation of C0

In an accompanying discussion of the thin-ring approximation, we showed that as $~\cosh\eta_0 \rightarrow \infty$

 $~C_0(x)\biggr|_{x\rightarrow \infty}$ $~=$ $~\biggl( \frac{3 \pi^2}{2^2} \biggr) \frac{1}{\cosh^2\eta_0} \, .$

Hence, in this limit we can write,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W0}(\eta,\theta)\biggr|_\mathrm{thin-ring}$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2 }{\pi} \cancelto{1}{\biggl[\frac{\sinh\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr]^3 } \frac{a}{ [ (\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 ]^{1 / 2} } \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k) \, .$
##### More General Evaluation of C0
 NOTE of CAUTION: In our above evaluation of the toroidal function, $~Q_{-\frac{1}{2}}(z)$, we appropriately associated the function argument, $~z$, with the hyperbolic-cotangent of $~\eta$; that is, we made the substitution, $~z \rightarrow \coth\eta$. Here, as we assess the behavior of, and evaluate, the leading coefficient, $~C_0$, an alternate substitution is appropriate, namely, $~z_0 \rightarrow \cosh\eta_0$; we affix the subscript zero to this function argument in an effort to minimize possible confusion with the argument, $~z$.

Drawing from our accompanying tabulation of Toroidal Function Evaluations, we have more generally,

 $~2C_0(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~=$ $~ \biggl[ Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) \biggr] \biggl[ Q_{ - \frac{1}{2}}^2(\cosh \eta_0) \biggr] + 3 \biggl[ Q_{ - \frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) \biggr] \biggl[ Q^2_{ + \frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) \biggr]$ $~=$ $~ \biggl[ \cosh\eta_0 ~k_0~K(k_0) ~-~ [2(\cosh\eta_0+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr] \times \biggl\{ \frac{ 4 \cosh\eta_0 ~E(k_0) - (\cosh\eta_0-1) K(k_0) }{ [2^{3} (\cosh\eta_0+1) (\cosh\eta_0-1)^{2} ]^{1 / 2}} \biggr\}$ $~ - \frac{3}{2^2} \biggl[ k_0 ~K ( k_0) \biggr] \times \biggl\{ \cosh\eta_0~ k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(\cosh^2\eta_0+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(\cosh\eta_0 - 1)(\cosh^2\eta_0 -1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\} \, ,$

where,

 $~k_0$ $~\equiv$ $~\biggl[ \frac{2}{\cosh\eta_0+1}\biggr]^{1 / 2} ~~~\Rightarrow ~~~ (\cosh\eta_0 + 1) = \frac{2}{k_0^2} \, .$

Looking back at our previous numerical evaluation of $~C_0(\cosh\eta_0)$ when $~z_0 = \cosh\eta_0 = 3 ~~\Rightarrow ~~~ k_0 = 2^{-1 / 2}$, we see that,

 Appendix Expression: $~Q_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~k_0 K(k_0)$ Hence MF53 value, $~Q_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~1.311028777 ~~~\Rightarrow ~~~ K(k_0) = 1.854074677$ Appendix Expression: $~Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0)$ Hence MF53 value, $~Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~0.1128885424 ~~~\Rightarrow~~~ E(k_0) = 1.350643881$ Appendix Expression: $~Q^2_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [4zE(k_0) - (z-1)K(k_0)]$ Hence, $~Q^2_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~1.104816977$, which matches MF53 value Additional derivation: $~Q^2_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ -~\frac{1}{2^2}\biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0)\biggr\}$ Hence, $~Q^2_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~0.449302588$

 $~\Rightarrow ~~~ C_0(3)$ $~=$ $~ \frac{1}{2}~Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}(3) \cdot Q_{- \frac{1}{2}}^2(3) + \frac{3}{2}~ Q_{- \frac{1}{2}}(3)\cdot Q^2_{+ \frac{1}{2}}(3) = 0.945933522 \, .$

Attempting to simplify this expression, we have,

 $~2C_0(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~=$ $~ \biggl\{ \cosh\eta_0 ~k_0~K(k_0) ~-~ \biggl(\frac{2}{k_0}\biggr) E(k_0) \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ \frac{ 4 \cosh\eta_0 ~E(k_0) - (\cosh\eta_0-1) K(k_0) }{ [2^{2} k_0^{-1} (\cosh\eta_0-1) ]} \biggr\}$ $~ - \frac{3}{2^2} \biggl[ k_0 ~K ( k_0) \biggr] \times \biggl\{ \cosh\eta_0~ k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(\cosh^2\eta_0+3) \biggl[ \frac{k_0^2}{(\cosh\eta_0 - 1)^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~ 2^3(\cosh\eta_0 - 1)C_0(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~=$ $~ \biggl\{ \cosh\eta_0 ~k_0^2~K(k_0) ~-~ 2 E(k_0) \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ 4 \cosh\eta_0 ~E(k_0) - (\cosh\eta_0-1) K(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ - 3 k_0 ~K ( k_0) \times \biggl\{ \cosh\eta_0(\cosh\eta_0 - 1)~ k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(\cosh^2\eta_0+3) k_0 E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ -~K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) \biggl[ (\cosh\eta_0-1) \cdot \cosh\eta_0 ~k_0^2 + 3\cosh\eta_0~ (\cosh\eta_0~-1)k_0^2\biggr]$ $~ + K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl[ 2^2 \cosh^2\eta_0 ~k_0^2 + 2(\cosh\eta_0 ~-1) + 3k_0^2 (\cosh^2\eta_0 ~ + 3)\biggr] - E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl[2^3\cosh\eta_0 \biggr]$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~ \biggl[ \frac{ 2^3(\cosh\eta_0 - 1)}{k_0^2} \biggr] C_0(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~=$ $~ -~K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) \biggl[ (\cosh\eta_0-1) \cdot \cosh\eta_0 + 3\cosh\eta_0~ (\cosh\eta_0~-1) \biggr]$ $~ + K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl[ 2^2 \cosh^2\eta_0 + \frac{2}{k_0^2}(\cosh\eta_0 ~-1) + 3 (\cosh^2\eta_0 ~ + 3)\biggr] - E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl[\frac{2^3\cosh\eta_0}{k_0^2} \biggr]$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~ (\cosh^2\eta_0 - 1) C_0(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~=$ $~ K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) \biggl[ \cosh\eta_0(1 - \cosh\eta_0) \biggr] + 2K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl[ \cosh^2\eta_0 + 1\biggr] - E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl[ \cosh\eta_0(1 + \cosh\eta_0) \biggr]$

This last, simplifed expression gives, as above, $~C_0(3) = 0.945933523$. TERRIFIC!

Finally then, for any choice of $~\eta_0$,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W0}(\eta,\theta)\biggr|_\mathrm{exterior}$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] \frac{a}{ [ (\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 ]^{1 / 2} } \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k)$ $~ \times \biggl\{ K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) [ \cosh\eta_0(1 - \cosh\eta_0) ] + 2K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) [ \cosh^2\eta_0 + 1 ] - E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) [ \cosh\eta_0(1 + \cosh\eta_0) ] \biggr\} \, .$

#### Second (n = 1) Term

The second (n = 1) term in Wong's (1973) expression for the exterior potential is,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W1}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -D_0 (\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)^{1 / 2} \cdot 2 \cos\theta \cdot C_1(\cosh\eta_0)P_{+\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh\eta) \, ,$

where, $~D_0$ is the same as above, and,

 $~C_1(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~\equiv$ $~\tfrac{3}{2} Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}^2(\cosh \eta_0) + \tfrac{1}{2} Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0)~Q^2_{+ \frac{3}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) \, .$

Now, from our accompanying table of "Toroidal Function Evaluations", it appears as though,

 $~P_{+\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh\eta)$ $~=$ $~\frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi} (\sinh\eta)^{+1 / 2} k^{-1} E(k) \, ,$

where, as above,

 $~k$ $~\equiv$ $~\biggl[ \frac{2}{\coth\eta+1} \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

Hence, we have,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W1}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \biggl[ \cos\theta \cdot (\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)^{1 / 2} (\sinh\eta)^{+1 / 2} \biggr] k^{-1} E(k)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \cdot \cos\theta \biggl\{ \frac{a\sinh^2\eta}{\varpi} \cdot \frac{\coth\eta + 1}{2} \biggr\}^{1 / 2} E(k)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \cdot \cos\theta \biggl\{ \biggl( \frac{a}{2\varpi} \biggr) \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr]^2 \cdot \biggl[ \frac{2r_1^2}{r_1^2 - r_2^2} \biggr] \biggr\}^{1 / 2} E(k)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \cdot \cos\theta \biggl\{ \biggl( \frac{a}{2} \biggr)\biggl[ \frac{4a}{r_1^2 - r_2^2} \biggr] \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr]^2 \cdot \biggl[ \frac{2r_1^2}{r_1^2 - r_2^2} \biggr] \biggr\}^{1 / 2} E(k)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} a}{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \biggl[ \frac{\cos\theta}{r_2} \biggr] E(k) = - \frac{2^{3} a}{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \biggl[ \frac{\cos\theta}{\sqrt{ (\varpi - a)^2 + (z-Z_0)^2 }} \biggr] E(k)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} a}{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \biggl[\frac{ r_1^2 + r_2^2 - 4a^2}{2r_1 r_2^2} \biggr] \boldsymbol{E}(k) \, .$

From the above function tabulations & evaluations — for example, $~ K(k_0) = 1.854074677$ and $~ E(k_0) = 1.350643881$ — and a separate listing of Example Recurrence Relations, we have,

 Appendix Expression: $~Q_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~k_0 K(k_0)$ Appendix Expression: $~Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0)$ $~Q^0_{m-\tfrac{1}{2}}$ recurrence with m = 2: $~Q_{+\tfrac{3}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~\frac{4}{3} z~Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0) - \frac{1}{3} Q_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~\frac{4}{3} z \{z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0)\} - \frac{1}{3}k_0 K(k_0)$ $~=$ $~\frac{1}{3} \biggl[ (4z^2 - 1 )k_0 K(k_0) - 4 z[2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr]$ Hence, $~Q_{+\tfrac{3}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~0.014544576 \, .$

 Appendix Expression: $~Q^2_{-\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [4zE(k_0) - (z-1)K(k_0)]$ Additional derivation: $~Q^2_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ -~\frac{1}{2^2} \biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0)\biggr\}$

Then, letting $~\mu \rightarrow 2$ and, for all m ≥ 2, letting $~\nu \rightarrow (m - \tfrac{1}{2})$ in the "Key Equation,"

 $~(\nu - \mu + 1)P^\mu_{\nu + 1} (z)$ $~=$ $~ (2\nu + 1)z P_\nu^\mu(z) - (\nu + \mu)P^\mu_{\nu-1}(z)$ Abramowitz & Stegun (1995), p. 334, eq. (8.5.3)
 NOTE: $~Q_\nu^\mu$, as well as $~P_\nu^\mu$, satisfies this same recurrence relation.

we have,

 $~(m - \tfrac{3}{2})Q^{2}_{m+\tfrac{1}{2}} (z)$ $~=$ $~ (2m)z Q_{m-\tfrac{1}{2}}^{2}(z) - (m + \tfrac{3}{2})Q^{2}_{m - \tfrac{3}{2}}(z) \, .$

Therefore, specifically for m = 1, we obtain the recurrence relation,

 $~Q^{2}_{+\tfrac{3}{2}} (z_0)$ $~=$ $~ 5 Q^{2}_{- \tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)-4z Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}^{2}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ 5 \biggl\{ [2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [4zE(k_0) - (z-1)K(k_0)] \biggr\} + z \biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0)\biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ 2^{1 / 2}[ (z-1)(z^2-1) ]^{- 1 / 2} \biggl\{ [5 z] ~-~z (z^2+3) \biggr\} E(k_0) + \biggl\{ z^2 k_0~ - [(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [ 2^{-3 / 2} \cdot 5 (z-1)] \biggr\}K(k_0)$ $~=$ $~ 2^{-3 / 2}(z+1)^{-1 / 2} [4 z^2 - 5 ]K(k_0) -~2^{1 / 2}[ (z-1)(z^2-1) ]^{- 1 / 2} (z^2 - 2)z E(k_0)$ Hence, $~Q^{2}_{+\tfrac{3}{2}} (3)$ $~=$ $~ 0.132453829 \, .$

 $~\Rightarrow ~~~ C_1(3)$ $~=$ $~ \frac{3}{2}~Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(3) \cdot Q_{+ \frac{1}{2}}^2(3) + \frac{1}{2}~ Q_{+ \frac{1}{2}}(3)\cdot Q^2_{+ \frac{3}{2}}(3) = 0.017278633 \, .$

While keeping in mind that,

 $~z_0$ $~=$ $~\cosh\eta_0 \, ,$ and, $~k_0^2$ $~=$ $~\frac{2}{\cosh\eta_0 + 1} = \frac{2}{z_0 + 1} \, ,$

let's attempt to express this leading coefficient, $~C_1(\cosh\eta_0)$, entirely in terms of the pair of complete elliptic integral functions.

 $~2C_1(z_0)$ $~=$ $~3 \biggl[ Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(z_0) \biggr]\times \biggl[ Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}^2(z_0) \biggr] + \biggl[ Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}(z_0) \biggr]\times \biggl[ 5 Q^{2}_{- \tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)-4z Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}^{2}(z_0) \biggr]$ $~=$ $~\biggl[3 Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(z_0) -4z Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}(z_0) \biggr]\times \biggl[ Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}^2(z_0) \biggr] + \biggl[ 5Q_{+\frac{1}{2}}(z_0) \biggr]\times \biggl[ Q^{2}_{- \tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0) \biggr]$ $~=$ $~-~\frac{1}{2^2}\biggl\{ (4z^2 - 1 )k_0 K(k_0) - 4 z[2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) -4z \biggl[ z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr] \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ + 5\biggl[ ~z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr] \times \biggl\{ [2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [4zE(k_0) - (z-1)K(k_0)] \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~\frac{1}{2^2} \cdot k_0 K(k_0) \times \biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ + 5[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} \biggl[ ~z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr] \times \biggl\{ 4zE(k_0) - (z-1)K(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) \biggl\{ \frac{z k_0^2}{2^2} - 5[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} \cdot zk_0(z-1)\biggr\} + E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl\{ -5[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2}\cdot [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} \cdot 4z \biggr\}$ $~ +~K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl\{ -~\frac{1}{2^2} \cdot k_0(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} + 5[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} \cdot 4z^2k_0 + 5[2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2}\cdot [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} \cdot (z-1) \biggr\} \, .$

Hence,

 $~2[(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{1 / 2} C_1(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ z k_0 \cdot K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) \biggl\{ \frac{k_0}{2^2} \biggl[(z-1)(z^2-1) \biggr]^{1 / 2} - \frac{5(z-1)}{2^{3/2}} \biggr\} -~10 z(z+1)^{1 / 2} \cdot E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0)$ $~ +~2^{-3/2} K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl\{ k_0[19z^2 - 3 ] + 5(z-1) [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} \biggr\}$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~2^{3/2}\biggl[ \frac{(z-1)}{k_0} \biggr] C_1(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ z k_0 \cdot K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) \biggl\{ \frac{k_0}{2^2} \biggl[\frac{2^{1 / 2}(z-1)}{k_0} \biggr] - \frac{5(z-1)}{2^{3/2}} \biggr\} -~\biggl[ \frac{2^{3 / 2} \cdot 5z}{k_0} \biggr] E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0)$ $~ +~2^{-3/2} K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \biggl\{ k_0[19z^2 - 3 ] + \frac{10 (z-1)}{k_0} \biggr\}$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~C_1(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ \biggl[ \frac{2(3z^2 - 1)}{(z^2-1)} \biggr]K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) -~\biggl[ \frac{z}{(z+1)} \biggr] K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) -~\biggl[ \frac{ 5z}{(z-1)} \biggr] E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0)$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~(z_0^2-1)C_1(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ 2(3z^2 - 1) K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) -~z_0(z_0-1) K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) -~5z_0(z_0+1) E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) \, .$

Hence, we have,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W1}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} a}{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_1(\cosh\eta_0) \biggl[\frac{ r_1^2 + r_2^2 - 4a^2}{2r_1 r_2^2} \biggr] \boldsymbol{E}(k) \, .$

#### Third (n = 2) Term

##### Part A

The third (n = 2) term in Wong's (1973) expression for the exterior potential is,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W2}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -D_0 (\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)^{1 / 2} \cdot 2 \cos(2\theta) \cdot C_2(\cosh\eta_0)P_{+\frac{3}{2}}(\cosh\eta) \, ,$

where, $~D_0$ is the same as above, and,

 $~C_2(\cosh\eta_0)$ $~\equiv$ $~\tfrac{5}{2}Q_{+\frac{5}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}^2(\cosh \eta_0) - \tfrac{1}{2} Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0)~Q^2_{+ \frac{5}{2}}(\cosh \eta_0) \, .$

In order to evaluate $~C_2(z)$, we will need the following pair of expressions in addition to the ones already used:

 $~Q^0_{m-\tfrac{1}{2}}$ recurrence with m = 3, gives:     $~Q_{+\tfrac{5}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~\frac{8}{5} z~Q_{+\tfrac{3}{2}}(z_0) - \frac{3}{5} Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)$
 $~\Rightarrow~~~15Q_{+\tfrac{5}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~8 z~\biggl[ (4z^2 - 1 )k_0 K(k_0) - 4 z[2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr] - 9 \biggl[ z~k_0 K(k_0) - [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr]$ $~=$ $~ z~k_0 K(k_0) \biggl[ 8(4z^2 - 1 ) - 9 \biggr] + [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggl[-32z^2 + 9 \biggr]$ $~=$ $~ z~k_0 K(k_0) [ 32z^2 - 17 ] + [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) [9 -32z^2 ] \, .$ Hence,     $~Q_{+\frac{5}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~0.002080867 \, .$

And, setting m = 2 in the above recurrence relation for $~Q^2_{m+\frac{1}{2}}(z)$ gives,

 $~\biggl[ (m - \tfrac{3}{2})Q^{2}_{m+\tfrac{1}{2}} (z) \biggr]_{m=2}$ $~=$ $~ \biggl[ (2m)z Q_{m-\tfrac{1}{2}}^{2}(z) - (m + \tfrac{3}{2})Q^{2}_{m - \tfrac{3}{2}}(z) \biggr]_{m=2}$ $~\Rightarrow ~~~ Q^{2}_{+\tfrac{5}{2}} (z)$ $~=$ $~ 8z Q_{+\tfrac{3}{2}}^{2}(z) - 7 Q^{2}_{+ \tfrac{1}{2}}(z)$ $~=$ $~ 8z \biggl[ 5 Q^{2}_{- \tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0)-4z Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}^{2}(z_0) \biggr] - 7 Q^{2}_{+ \tfrac{1}{2}}(z)$ $~=$ $~ 40z Q^{2}_{- \tfrac{1}{2}}(z_0) - [32z^2 +7]Q_{+\tfrac{1}{2}}^{2}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ 40z \biggl\{ [2^3(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [4zE(k_0) - (z-1)K(k_0)] \biggr\}$ $~ + \frac{[32z^2 +7]}{4} \biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~(z^2+3) \biggl[ \frac{2}{(z-1)(z^2-1)} \biggr]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\}$
 $~\Rightarrow ~~~ 4Q^{2}_{+\tfrac{5}{2}} (z)$ $~=$ $~ 2^5\cdot 5z \biggl\{ 2^{1 / 2} [(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [zE(k_0) ] - 2^{-3 / 2}[(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} [(z-1)K(k_0)] \biggr\}$ $~ + [32z^2 +7] \biggl\{ z k_0~K ( k_0 ) ~-~2^{1 / 2}(z^2+3) [ (z-1)(z^2-1) ]^{-1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ \biggl\{ 2^{11 / 2}\cdot 5 [z^2 ] - 2^{1 / 2} [32z^2 +7] (z^2+3) \biggr\}[(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} E(k_0)$ $~ -~2^{7 / 2}\cdot 5 \biggl\{ [(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} (z-1) \biggr\} z K(k_0) + [32z^2 +7] \biggl\{ 2^{1 / 2}[z + 1]^{-1 / 2} \biggr\} z K ( k_0 )$ $~=$ $~ 2^{1 / 2}\biggl\{ 32z^2 - 33 \biggr\} z [z + 1]^{-1 / 2} K ( k_0 ) -~2^{1 / 2} \biggl\{ 32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21 \biggr\}[(z-1)(z^2-1)]^{-1 / 2} E(k_0)$ $~=$ $~ 2^{1 / 2}[z + 1]^{-1 / 2} [z-1]^{-1 }\biggl[ (32z^2 - 33) z (z-1) K ( k_0 ) -~(32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)E(k_0) \biggr] \, .$ Hence,     $~Q^2_{+\frac{5}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~0.03377378 \, .$
##### Part B

Let's evaluate $~C_2(z)$ specifically for the case where $~z = \cosh\eta_0 = 3$, using the already separately evaluated values of the four relevant toroidal functions. We find,

 $~2C_2(3)$ $~=$ $~5Q_{+\frac{5}{2}}(3) Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}^2(3) - Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(3)~Q^2_{+ \frac{5}{2}}(3)$ $~=$ $~ 5\cdot ( 0.002080867 ) \times ( 0.132453829 ) - ( 0.014544576 ) \times (0.03377378 )$ $~=$ $~ 8.868687\times 10^{-4} \, .$

Next, let's develop a consolidated expression for $~C_2(z_0)$ that replaces all the toroidal functions with complete elliptic integrals of the first and second kind.

 $~2C_2(z_0)$ $~=$ $~5Q_{+\frac{5}{2}}(z_0) Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}^2(z_0) - Q_{+\frac{3}{2}}(z_0)~Q^2_{+ \frac{5}{2}}(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ \frac{1}{3}\biggl\{ z~k_0 K(k_0) [ 32z^2 - 17 ] + [2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) [9 -32z^2 ] \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ 2^{-3 / 2}(z+1)^{-1 / 2} [4 z^2 - 5 ]K(k_0) -~2^{1 / 2}[ (z-1)(z^2-1) ]^{- 1 / 2} (z^2 - 2)z E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ - \frac{1}{2^2\cdot 3} \biggl\{ (4z^2 - 1 )k_0 K(k_0) - 4 z[2(z+1)]^{1 / 2} E(k_0) \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ 2^{1 / 2}[z + 1]^{-1 / 2} [z-1]^{-1 }\biggl[ (32z^2 - 33) z (z-1) K ( k_0 ) -~(32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)E(k_0) \biggr] \biggr\}$
 $~\Rightarrow ~~~ 2^{2} \cdot 3 (z^2-1) C_2(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ \biggl\{ K(k_0) z[ 32z^2 - 17 ] + (z+1) E(k_0) [9 -32z^2 ] \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ (z-1) [4 z^2 - 5 ]K(k_0) -~4 (z^2 - 2)z E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ - ~ \biggl\{ (4z^2 - 1 ) K(k_0) - 4 z(z+1) E(k_0) \biggr\} \times \biggl\{ (32z^2 - 33) z (z-1) K ( k_0 ) -~(32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ \biggl\{ (z-1)[ 32z^2 - 17 ] [4 z^2 - 5 ]z K(k_0) \cdot K(k_0) -~4 (z^2 - 2)z^2 [ 32z^2 - 17 ] K(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ + \biggl\{ (z-1) (z+1) [9 -32z^2 ] [4 z^2 - 5 ]K(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) -~4 (z^2 - 2)z (z+1) [9 -32z^2 ] E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ + ~ \biggl\{ (32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)(4z^2 - 1 ) K(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) -~(32z^2 - 33) z (z-1)(4z^2 - 1 ) K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~ + ~ \biggl\{ 4 z(z+1)(32z^2 - 33) z (z-1) K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0) -~4 z(z+1)(32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~(z-1)\biggl\{ \biggl[ ( 32z^2 - 17 ) (4 z^2 - 5 )z \biggr] -~\biggl[ (32z^2 - 33) z (4z^2 - 1 ) \biggr] \biggr\} K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0)$ $~ + \biggl\{ \biggl[ (z-1) (z+1) (9 -32z^2 ) (4 z^2 - 5 )\biggr] -~\biggl[ 4 (z^2 - 2)z^2 ( 32z^2 - 17 ) \biggr]$ $~ + ~ \biggl[ (32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)(4z^2 - 1 ) \biggr] + ~ \biggl[ 4 z(z+1)(32z^2 - 33) z (z-1)\biggr]\biggr\} K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0)$ $~ -~2z(z+1) \biggl\{ \biggl[ 2 (32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21) \biggr] +~2\biggl[ (z^2 - 2) (9 -32z^2 )\biggr] \biggr\} E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0)$ $~=$ $~ z(z-1)\biggl\{[ 52 - 64z^2 ] \biggr\} K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) -~4z(z+1) \biggl\{ [ 3 +16z^2 ]\biggr\} E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0)$ $~ + \biggl\{ \biggl[ 5(32z^4 - 41z^2 + 9 ) \biggr] - \biggl[ (32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21)\biggr]$ $~ + ~ 4z^2\biggl[ (32z^4 - 57 z^2 + 21) + (32z^4 - 65z^2 + 33) + (-32z^4 + 41z^2 -9 ) +~( -32z^4 + 81z^2 - 34 ) \biggr]\biggr\} K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0)$ $~=$ $~ 4z(z-1)\biggl\{ 13 - 16z^2 \biggr\} K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) -~4z(z+1) \biggl\{ [ 3 +16z^2 ]\biggr\} E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) + 8\biggl\{ 16z^4 -13z^2 + 3 \biggr\} K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0) \, .$

Finally, let's evaluate this consolidated expression for the specific case of $~z_0 = \cosh\eta_0 = 3$, remembering that in this specific case $~k_0 = 2^{-1 / 2}$, $~K(k_0) = 1.854074677$, and $~E(k_0) = 1.350643881$. We find,

 $~2C_2(z_0)$ $~=$ $~ [2 \cdot 3 (z^2-1) ]^{-1} \biggl\{ 4z(z-1) [ 13 - 16z^2 ] K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) -~4z(z+1) [ 3 +16z^2 ] E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) + 8[ 16z^4 -13z^2 + 3 ] K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ [48 ]^{-1} \biggl\{ -24[ 131 ] K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) -~48 [ 147] E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) + 8[ 1182 ] K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ 8.8708 \times 10^{-4} \, .$

This matches the numerically evaluated expression, from above (6/30/2020). There is a tremendous amount of cancellation between the three key terms in this expression, so the match is only to three significant digits.</tr>

Useful Relations from Above
 $~\cosh\eta$ $~=$ $~\frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \, ;$ $~\sinh\eta$ $~=$ $~\frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \, ;$ $~\varpi$ $~=$ $~\frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2a} \, ;$ $~\cosh\eta - \cos\theta$ $~=$ $~\frac{2a^2}{r_1 r_2} \, ;$ $~ \cos\theta$ $~=$ $~\frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2-4a^2}{2r_1 r_2} \, ;$ $~\frac{2}{\coth\eta + 1}$ $~=$ $~\frac{4a\varpi}{r_1^2} \, .$

Now, from our tabulation of example recurrence relations, we see that,

 $~ P_{+\frac{3}{2}}(\cosh\eta)$ $~=$ $~\frac{4}{3} \cdot \cosh\eta ~P_{+\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh\eta) - \frac{1}{3} ~ P_{-\frac{1}{2}}(\cosh\eta)$ $~=$ $~\frac{4}{3} \cdot \cosh\eta \biggl[ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi} (\sinh\eta)^{+1 / 2} k^{-1} \boldsymbol{E}(k) \biggr] - \frac{1}{3} ~ \biggl[ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\pi}~ (\sinh\eta)^{-1 / 2} ~k \boldsymbol{K}(k)\biggr]$ $~=$ $~\frac{2^{1 / 2}}{3\pi} \biggl[ 4 \cosh\eta (\sinh\eta)^{+1 / 2} k^{-1} \boldsymbol{E}(k) - (\sinh\eta)^{-1 / 2} ~k \boldsymbol{K}(k)\biggr] \, ,$

where, as above,

$~ k \equiv \biggl[ \frac{2}{\coth\eta + 1} \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \biggl[ \frac{4a\varpi}{(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \biggl[ \frac{4a\varpi}{r_1^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

So we have,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W2}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{2^{5/2} }{3\pi^2} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_2(\cosh\eta_0)\cos(2\theta) \biggl\{ (\cosh\eta - \cos\theta)^{1 / 2}P_{+\frac{3}{2}}(\cosh\eta) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{2^{3} }{3^2\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_2(\cosh\eta_0)\cos(2\theta)\biggl( \frac{2a^2}{r_1 r_2}\biggr)^{1 / 2} \biggl\{ 4 \cosh\eta (\sinh\eta)^{+1 / 2} k^{-1} \boldsymbol{E}(k) - (\sinh\eta)^{-1 / 2} ~k \boldsymbol{K}(k) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{2^{3} }{3^2\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_2(\cosh\eta_0)\cos(2\theta)\biggl( \frac{2a^2}{r_1 r_2}\biggr)^{1 / 2}$ $~ \times \biggl\{ 4 \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr] \biggl[\frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr]^{+1 / 2} \biggl[ \frac{4a}{r_1^2} \biggl( \frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2a} \biggr)\biggr]^{-1 / 2} \boldsymbol{E}(k) - \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr]^{-1 / 2} ~\biggl[ \frac{4a}{r_1^2}\biggl( \frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{2a} \biggr) \biggr]^{1 / 2} \boldsymbol{K}(k) \biggr\}$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{2^{9/2} }{3^2\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh^3\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] C_2(\cosh\eta_0)\cos(2\theta) \times \biggl\{ \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr] \frac{a}{r_2} \cdot \boldsymbol{E}(k) - \frac{a}{r_1} \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k) \biggr\} \, .$

Finally, inserting the expression for $~\sinh^2\eta_0~ C_2(\cosh\eta_0) = (z_0^2-1)C_2(z_0)$ that we have derived, above, gives,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W2}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{2^{9/2} }{3^3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] \times \cos(2\theta) \biggl\{ \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr] \frac{a}{r_2} \cdot \boldsymbol{E}(k) - \frac{a}{r_1} \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k) \biggr\}$ $~ \times \biggl\{ z(z-1) [ 13 - 16z^2 ] K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) -~z(z+1) [ 3 +16z^2 ] E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) + 2 [ 16z^4 -13z^2 + 3 ] K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0) \biggr\} \, .$

#### Summary

Once the major ( R ) and minor ( d ) radii of the torus have been specified, two key model parameters can be immediately determined, namely,

$~a^2 \equiv R^2 - d^2\, ,$       and,       $~\cosh\eta_0 \equiv \frac{R}{d} \, ,$

in which case also, $~\sinh\eta_0 = a/d \, .$ Once the mass-density ( ρ0 ) of the torus has been specified, the torus mass is given by the expression,

$~M = 2\pi^2 \rho_0 d^2 R \, .$

In addition to the principal pair of meridional-plane coordinates, $~(\varpi, z)$, it is useful to define the pair of distances,

 $~r_1^2$ $~\equiv$ $~(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 \, ,$ $~r_2^2$ $~\equiv$ $~(\varpi - a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2 \, ,$

where, the equatorial plane of the torus is located at $~z = Z_0$. As we have shown above, the leading (n = 0) term in Wong's (1973) series-expression for the gravitational potential anywhere outside the torus is,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W0}(\varpi,z)\biggr|_\mathrm{exterior}$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] \frac{a}{ r_1 } \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k)$ $~ \times \biggl\{ K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) [ \cosh\eta_0(1 - \cosh\eta_0) ] + 2K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) [ \cosh^2\eta_0 + 1 ] - E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) [ \cosh\eta_0(1 + \cosh\eta_0) ] \biggr\} \, .$

where, the two distinctly different arguments — one with, and one without a zero subscript — of the complete elliptic-integral functions are,

 $~k$ $~\equiv$ $~ \biggl[ \frac{2}{\coth\eta + 1} \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \biggl[ \frac{4a\varpi}{(\varpi + a)^2 + (z - Z_0)^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \biggl[ \frac{4a\varpi}{r_1^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} = \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 - r_2^2}{r_1^2} \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, ,$ $~k_0$ $~\equiv$ $~ \biggl[ \frac{2}{\cosh\eta_0 + 1} \biggr]^{1 / 2} \, .$

As we also have shown above, the second (n = 1) term in Wong's (1973) series-expression for the exterior gravitational potential is,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W1}(\varpi,z)\biggr|_\mathrm{exterior}$ $~=$ $~ - \frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] \biggl[\frac{ r_1^2 + r_2^2 - 4a^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr] \frac{a}{r_2} \cdot \boldsymbol{E}(k)$ $~\times \biggl\{ K(k_0)\cdot K(k_0) [\cosh\eta_0(1 - \cosh\eta_0)] +~2K(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) [(3\cosh^2\eta_0 - 1)] -~5 E(k_0)\cdot E(k_0) [\cosh\eta_0(1+\cosh\eta_0)] \biggr\} \, .$

Note that a transformation from the $~(r_1, r_2)$ coordinate pair to the toroidal-coordinate pair $~(\eta, \theta)$ includes the expression,

 $~\cos\theta$ $~=$ $~ \frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2 - 4a^2}{2r_1 r_2} \, .$

So this (n = 1) term's explicit dependence on "cos(nθ)" is clear. Finally, the third (n = 2) term in Wong's (1973) series-expression for the exterior gravitational potential is,

 $~\biggl( \frac{a}{GM} \biggr) \Phi_\mathrm{W2}(\eta,\theta)$ $~=$ $~ -\frac{2^{3} }{3\pi^3} \biggl[ \frac{\sinh\eta_0}{\cosh\eta_0}\biggr] \times \cos(2\theta) \biggl\{ \biggl[ \frac{r_1^2 + r_2^2}{2r_1 r_2} \biggr] \frac{a}{r_2} \cdot \boldsymbol{E}(k) - \frac{a}{r_1} \cdot \boldsymbol{K}(k) \biggr\}$ $~ \times \frac{2^{3 / 2}}{3^2}\biggl\{ K ( k_0 ) \cdot K(k_0) \cdot \cosh\eta_0(1 - \cosh\eta_0) [ 16\cosh^2\eta_0 - 13] + 2 K ( k_0 ) \cdot E(k_0) [ 16\cosh^4\eta_0 -13\cosh^2\eta_0 + 3 ]$ $~ -~E(k_0) \cdot E(k_0) \cdot \cosh\eta_0 (1 + \cosh\eta_0) [ 3 +16\cosh^2\eta_0 ] \biggr\} \, .$
