jn: Bessel functions of the first kind
PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.NAME
j0, j1, jn - Bessel functions of the first kind
SYNOPSIS
#include <math.h>
double j0(double x);
double j1(double x);
double jn(int n, double x);
DESCRIPTION
The j0(), j1(), and jn() functions shall compute Bessel functions of x of the first kind of orders 0, 1, and n, respectively.
An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is non-zero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID | FE_DIVBYZERO | FE_OVERFLOW | FE_UNDERFLOW) is non-zero, an error has occurred.
RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the relevant Bessel value of x of the first kind.
If the x argument is too large in magnitude, or the correct result would cause underflow, 0 shall be returned and a range error may occur.
If x is NaN, a NaN shall be returned.
ERRORS
These functions may fail if:
- Range Error
- The value of x was too large in magnitude, or an underflow occurred.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is non-zero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is non-zero, then the underflow floating-point exception shall be raised.
No other errors shall occur.
The following sections are informative.
EXAMPLES
APPLICATION USAGE
On error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be non-zero.
