# scipy.special.jve¶

scipy.special.jve(v, z) = <ufunc 'jve'>

Exponentially scaled Bessel function of order v.

Defined as:

jve(v, z) = jv(v, z) * exp(-abs(z.imag))

Parameters
varray_like

Order (float).

zarray_like

Argument (float or complex).

Returns
Jndarray

Value of the exponentially scaled Bessel function.

Notes

For positive v values, the computation is carried out using the AMOS  zbesj routine, which exploits the connection to the modified Bessel function $$I_v$$,

\begin{align}\begin{aligned}J_v(z) = \exp(v\pi\imath/2) I_v(-\imath z)\qquad (\Im z > 0)\\J_v(z) = \exp(-v\pi\imath/2) I_v(\imath z)\qquad (\Im z < 0)\end{aligned}\end{align}

For negative v values the formula,

$J_{-v}(z) = J_v(z) \cos(\pi v) - Y_v(z) \sin(\pi v)$

is used, where $$Y_v(z)$$ is the Bessel function of the second kind, computed using the AMOS routine zbesy. Note that the second term is exactly zero for integer v; to improve accuracy the second term is explicitly omitted for v values such that v = floor(v).
