Abstract: In this paper, we propose an algorithm for the stable and efficient
computation of Fourier expansions of square integrable functions on the
unit sphere $S\subset \mathbb{R}^3$, as well as for the evaluation
of these Fourier expansion at special knots. The heart of the algorithm
is an efficiant realization of discrete Legendre function transforms
based on a modified and stabilized version of the Driscall Healy
