# scipy.special.ynp_zeros¶

scipy.special.ynp_zeros(n, nt)[source]

Compute zeros of integer-order Bessel function derivatives Yn’(x).

Compute nt zeros of the functions $$Y_n'(x)$$ on the interval $$(0, \infty)$$. The zeros are returned in ascending order.

Parameters
nint

Order of Bessel function

ntint

Number of zeros to return

Examples

>>> import scipy.special as sc


We can check that we are getting approximations of the zeros by evaluating them with yvp.

>>> n = 2
>>> x = sc.ynp_zeros(n, 3)
>>> x
array([ 5.00258293,  8.3507247 , 11.57419547])
>>> sc.yvp(n, x)
array([ 2.22044605e-16, -3.33066907e-16,  2.94902991e-16])
