Implementation of Miller's method for evaluation of Bessel functions of first kind

  • A. V. Zaitsev
Approximate Solution of Boundary-Value Problems of Mathematical Physics


The implementation of Miller's iterative method is considered. A number of techniques are proposed, extending the applicability of the method to various computing systems. We discuss the evaluation of Bessel functions of first kind by these techniques in a wide range of real argument and index values and also for a number of complex argument values and an arbitrary real index.
