The current book makes several useful topics from the theory of special functions, in particular the theory of spherical harmonics and Legendre polynomials in arbitrary dimensions, available to undergraduates studying physics or mathematics. With this audience in mind, nearly all details of the calculations and proofs are written out, and extensive background material is covered before exploring the main subject matter.
