y = airy(x)
y = airy(kind, x)
[y, error] = airy(x)
[y, error] = airy(kind, x)
Computes the Airy functions Ai and Bi as well as their derivatives.
Name  Description  

x  Specifies a real or complex scalar, vector, or matrix.  
kind  Specifies the kind of Airy function to evaluate. kind is an integer that accepts the following values.

Name  Description  

y  Returns an Airy function or the derivative of an Airy function. y is a matrix of the same size as x.  
error  Returns error information about the evaluation of the Airy functions. error is a matrix of integers in which each element can return the following values.

Ai(x) and Bi(x) solve the following equation: w''  x*w = 0.
LabVIEW computes Ai(x) using the following equation: Ai(x) = sqrt(x/3)*bessel_k(1/3, (2*sqrt(x)^{3})/3). LabVIEW computes Bi(x) using a similar equation.
