J0(3)		       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual			 J0(3)

NAME
     j0, j0f, j1, j1f, jn, jnf,	y0, y0f, y1, y1f, yn, ynf -- Bessel functions
     of	first and second kind

LIBRARY
     Math Library (libm, -lm)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <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 the order 0 and the order 1, respectively, 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 indepen-
     dent Bessel function of the second	kind of	the order 0 and	the order 1,
     respectively, 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, these	routines will generate an invalid exception and	return
     NaN.  If x	is 0 or	a sufficiently small positive number, these routines
     will generate an overflow exception and return -infinity.

STANDARDS
     The j0(), j1(), jn(), y0(), y1(), and yn()	functions conform to IEEE Std
     1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').	 The float versions are	extensions.

HISTORY
     This set of functions appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.
