Computation of Ynm

Noting the following identity

\begin{eqnarray*}Y_n^m(\widehat{O\mbox{\boldmath$ x $ }}) = \sqrt{(n-m)!(n+m)!} R_{n,m}(\widehat{O\mbox{\boldmath$ x $ }}),
\end{eqnarray*}


we compute Yn,m and their derivatives using recurrence formulae in Appendix C and relations in Appendix D.
