Calculus 3-Spherical

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

Re: Calculus 3-Spherical

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 .
