Airy functions

Airy functions as per the Gnu Scientific Library, reference manual section 7.4 and AMS-55, section 10.4. These functions are declared in header file gsl_sf_airy.h

Usage
airy_Ai(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Ai_scaled(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Ai(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Bi_scaled(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Ai_deriv(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Bi_deriv(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Ai_deriv_scaled(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_Bi_deriv_scaled(x, mode=0, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_zero_Ai(n, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_zero_Bi(n, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_zero_Ai_deriv(n, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
airy_zero_Bi_deriv(n, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
Arguments
x

input: real values

n

input: integer values

give

Boolean with TRUE meaning to return a list of three items: the value, an estimate of the error, and a status number

mode

input: mode. For GSL_PREC_DOUBLE, GSL_PREC_SINGLE, GSL_PREC_APPROX use 0,1,2 respectively

strict

Boolean, with TRUE meaning to return NaN if status is an error

Details

The zero functions return a status of GSL_EDOM and a value of NA for \(n\leq 0\).

An example is given in the package vignette.

# Verify 10.4.4 and 10.4.5, p446:
3^(-2/3)/gamma(2/3)   - airy_Ai(0)
3^(-1/3) / gamma(1/3) + airy_Ai_deriv(0) 
3^(-1/6) / gamma(2/3) - airy_Bi(0)
3^(1/6) / gamma(1/3)  - airy_Bi_deriv(0)
#  All should be small
