Bessel functions of Integer Order in multiple precisions

Description

Bessel functions of integer orders, provided via arbitrary precision algorithms from the MPFR library.

Note that the computation can be very slow when n and x are large (and of similar magnitude).

Usage

Ai(x)
j0(x)
j1(x)
jn(n, x, rnd.mode = c("N","D","U","Z","A"))
y0(x)
y1(x)
yn(n, x, rnd.mode = c("N","D","U","Z","A"))

Arguments

x

a numeric or mpfr vector.

n

non-negative integer (vector).

rnd.mode

a 1-letter string specifying how rounding should happen at C-level conversion to MPFR, see mpfr.

Value

Computes multiple precision versions of the Bessel functions of integer order, J[n](x) and Y[n](x), and—when using MPFR library 3.0.0 or newer—also of the Airy function Ai(x).

See Also

besselJ, and besselY compute the same bessel functions but for arbitrary real order and only precision of a bit more than ten digits.

x <- (0:100)/8 # (have exact binary representation)
stopifnot(  all.equal(besselY(x, 0), bY0 <- y0(x))
          , all.equal(besselJ(x, 1), bJ1 <- j1(x))
          , all.equal(yn(0,x), bY0)
          , all.equal(jn(1,x), bJ1)
         )
