Return Value

s17af returns the value of the Bessel function J1x.


s17af evaluates an approximation to the Bessel function of the first kind J1x.
Note:  J1-x=-J1x, so the approximation need only consider x0.
The method is based on three Chebyshev expansions:
For 0<x8,
J1x=x8'r=0arTrt,   with ​t=2 x8 2-1.
For x>8,
J1x=2πx P1xcosx-3π4-Q1xsinx-3π4
where P1x='r=0brTrt,
and Q1x= 8x'r=0crTrt,
with t=2 8x 2-1.
For x near zero, J1x x2 . This approximation is used when x is sufficiently small for the result to be correct to machine precision.
For very large x, it becomes impossible to provide results with any reasonable accuracy (see [Accuracy]), hence the method fails. Such arguments contain insufficient information to determine the phase of oscillation of J1x; only the amplitude, 2πx , can be determined and this is returned on soft failure. The range for which this occurs is roughly related to machine precision; the method will fail if x1/machine precision (see the Library Constants section of the Introduction for details).


Error Indicators and Warnings

Errors or warnings detected by the method:
x is too large. On failure the method returns the amplitude of the J1 oscillation, 2πx .


Let δ be the relative error in the argument and E be the absolute error in the result. (Since J1x oscillates about zero, absolute error and not relative error is significant.)
However, if δ is of the same order as machine precision, then rounding errors could make E slightly larger than the above relation predicts.
For very large x, the above relation ceases to apply. In this region, J1x 2πx cosx- 3π4. The amplitude 2πx  can be calculated with reasonable accuracy for all x, but cosx- 3π4 cannot. If x- 3π4  is written as 2Nπ+θ where N is an integer and 0θ<2π, then cosx- 3π4 is determined by θ only. If xδ-1, θ cannot be determined with any accuracy at all. Thus if x is greater than, or of the order of, the reciprocal of machine precision, it is impossible to calculate the phase of J1x and the method must fail.
