Spheroidal deformations are useful in describing the ground state deformations of many nuclei and are also suited for describing larger prolate and oblate deformations in schematical calculations. Here and in the following, (ϱ, z) are axiaily symmetric cylindrical coordinates, ϱ s = ϱ s (z) is the surface function, z0 is half the length, and ϱ n = ϱ s (0) is the neck radius for symmetric shapes.
