SYNOPSIS

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <math.h>

double j0(double x);

double j1(double x);
double jn(int n, double x);
double y0(double x);
double y1(double x);
double yn(int n, double x); float j0f(float x);
float j1f(float x);
float jnf(int n, float x);
float y0f(float x);
float y1f(float x);
float ynf(int n, float x); long double j0l(long double x);
long double j1l(long double x);
long double jnl(int n, long double x);

DESCRIPTION

The j0() and j1() functions return Bessel functions of x of the first kind of orders 0 and 1, respectively. The jn() function returns the Bessel function of x of the first kind of order n.

The y0() and y1() functions return Bessel functions of x of the second kind of orders 0 and 1, respectively. The yn() function returns the Bessel function of x of the second kind of order n.

For the functions y0(), y1() and yn(), the value of x must be positive. For negative values of x, these functions return -HUGE_VAL.

The j0f() etc. and j0l() etc. functions are versions that take and return float and long double values, respectively.  

CONFORMING TO

The functions returning double conform to SVr4, 4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.  

BUGS

There are errors of up to 2e-16 in the values returned by j0(), j1() and jn() for values of x between -8 and 8.
