Generalized Prolate Spheroids

Has anyone developed code for calculating the Generalized Prolate
Spheroidal functions? 

They are found from the eigensolution of the integral equation:

lambda*phi(x)=ŠÜint^{1}_{0} J_N(c*x*y) * sqrt(c*x*y) * phi(y) dy 

for N=0,1,2,.... where J_N is the Bessel J function of order N, phi(x)
is the eigenfunction and lambda is the corresponding eigenvalue.

They are also the solution of the differential equation:

d/dx{ (1-x^2) * d/dx{phi(x)} } + (chi - (c*x)^2 + (0.25-N^2)/(x^2)) *
phi(x) = 0

where chi is the corresponding eigenvalue. 

See Slepian (1964) Bell Sys. Tech. J. 44.
