Requires: MathScript RT Module

## Syntax

jv = bessel(v, x)

jv = bessel(v, x, 1)

[jv, error] = bessel(v, x)

[jv, error] = bessel(v, x, 1)

## Description

Computes the Bessel function of the first kind of a given order.

## Inputs

Name Description
v Specifies the order of the Bessel function. v is a real, double-precision, floating-point positive scalar, vector, or matrix.
x Specifies the value for which you want to compute the Bessel function. x is a real or complex, double-precision, floating-point scalar, vector, or matrix.
1 Scales the computation. bessel_j(v, x, 1) scales bessel_j(v, x) by exp(-abs(imag(x))).

## Outputs

Name Description
jv Returns the Bessel function of the first kind. jv is a real or complex, double-precision, floating-point scalar, vector, or matrix.
error Returns error information about the evaluation of the Bessel function. error is a matrix of integers in which each element can return the following values.

 0 Indicates that no error occurred. 1 Indicates that you specified invalid inputs. 2 Indicates that the result is too large for the data type of jv. Use the scaling option 1. 3 Indicates that LabVIEW achieved less than half the machine accuracy in the calculation because |x| or v is greater than approximately 1.3E8. 4 Indicates that the result is meaningless because |x| or v is greater than approximately 1.8E16. 5 Indicates that the calculation did not reach the termination condition so LabVIEW did not complete the calculation.
