In this paper, we present the Abramov approach for the numerical simulation of the whis-pering gallery modes in prolate spheroids. The main idea of this approach is the Newton-Raphson technique combined with the quasi-time marching. In the ﬁrst step, a solution of a simpler problem, as an initial guess for the Newton-Raphson iterations, is provided. Then, step-by-step, this simpler problem is converted into the original problem, while the quasi-time parameter τ runs from τ = 0 to τ = 1. While following the involved imaginary path two numerical approaches are realized, the ﬁrst is based on the Pr¨ufer angle technique, the second on high order ﬁnite diﬀerence schemes.
