j0, j0f, j0l, j1, j1f, j1l, jn, jnf, jnl - Bessel functions of the

double j1(double x);
double jn(int n, double x);
float j0f(float x);
float j1f(float x);
float jnf(int n, float x);

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
j0(), j1(), jn():
_SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE
j0f(), j0l(), j1f(), j1l(), jnf(), jnl():
_SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600
The j0() and j1() functions return Bessel functions of x of the first
kind of orders 0 and 1, respectively. The jn() function returns the
Bessel function of x of the first kind of order n.
The j0f(), j1f(), and jnf(), functions are versions that take and
return float values. The j0l(), j1l(), and jnl() functions are ver‐
sions that take and return long double values.
On success, these functions return the appropriate Bessel value of the
first kind for x.
If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.
If x is too large in magnitude, or the result underflows, a range error
occurs, and the return value is 0.
See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error
has occurred when calling these functions.
The following errors can occur:
Range error: result underflow, or x is too large in magnitude
errno is set to ERANGE.
These functions do not raise exceptions for fetestexcept(3).
The functions returning double conform to SVr4, 4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.
The others are nonstandard functions that also exist on the BSDs.
There are errors of up to 2e-16 in the values returned by j0(), j1()
and jn() for values of x between -8 and 8.
