SYNOPSIS


.In math.h double j0 double x float j0f float x double j1 double x float j1f float x double jn int n double x float jnf int n float x double y0 double x float y0f float x double y1 double x float y1f float x double yn int n double x float ynf int n float x

DESCRIPTION

The functions j0, j0f, j1, and j1f compute the Bessel function of the first kind of orders 0 and 1 for the real value x; the functions jn and jnf compute the Bessel function of the first kind of the integer order n for the real value x.

The functions y0, y0f, y1, and y1f compute the linearly independent Bessel function of the second kind of orders 0 and 1 for the positive real value x; the functions yn and ynf compute the Bessel function of the second kind for the integer order n for the positive real value x.

RETURN VALUES

These routines return values of their respective Bessel functions. For large positive inputs, they may underflow and return ±0.

The following applies to y0, y0f, y1, y1f, yn, and ynf. If x is negative, including -oo, these routines will generate an invalid exception and return NaN. If x is ±0, these routines will generate a divide-by-zero exception and return -oo. If x is a sufficiently small positive number, then y1, y1f, yn, and ynf will generate an overflow exception and return -oo.

STANDARDS

The j0, j1, jn, y0, y1, and yn functions conform to -p1003.1-2001. The float versions are extensions.
