Solution of Mathieu's Type of Secular Equations

### Abstract

A discussion is given for the general solution of a secular equation with all other matrix elements equal to zero except *H*_{ii} , *H*_{i i+h} , and *H*_{i+h i} . Both the eigenvalue and the amplitudes of the corresponding eigenfunction are expressed in terms of continued fractions of the matrix elements. A solution of Mathieu equation is used as an example to compare the present method with other methods.
