Some points (x,y,z) have basically only one valid corresponding representation in spherical coordinates: (rho, theta, phi). But is there a set of points that have one or more? Please explain for me. Thank you

What, exactly, do you mean by "valid representation"? Obviously, any point can be written as for any integers n and m. Does "valid representation" require that be between 0 and and that be between 0 and ? Assuming that, look at r= 0 for any and .
