# DESCRIPTION

The functions j0(), j0f(), j1() and j1f() compute the Bessel function of the first kind of the order 0 and the order 1, respectively, for the real value x; the functions jn() and jnf() compute the Bessel function of the first kind of the integer order n for the real value x.

The functions y0(), y0f(), y1() and y1f() compute the linearly independent Bessel function of the second kind of the order 0 and the order 1, respectively, for the positive integer value x (expressed as a double); the functions yn() and ynf() compute the Bessel function of the second kind for the integer order n for the positive integer value x (expressed as a double).

# RETURN VALUES

If these functions are successful, the computed value is returned, otherwise the global variable errno is set to EDOM and a reserve operand fault is generated.
