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

       double j1(double x);
       double jn(int n, double x);

       float j0f(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()  etc.  and  j0l()  etc. functions are versions that take and
       return float and long double values, respectively.


       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.
