Bessel functions?


    May 06 2007 | 2:32 pm
    I'm trying to find out how to implement a Bessel function. I've searched the forums and found that there is a function in JMSL, however, I cant afford it atm... does anyone know a free alternative? The equation in question is below:
    Jn(K r) (C1 cos(n theta) + C2 sin(n theta))
    All the best, Carl.

      Thanks man, as I'm not a mathematician can you explain how the Bessel function is implemented in the patch?

      Nice approximation:

      I wonder where the crucial comment with the example patch in this thread has gone?
