scipy.special.hankel1

scipy.special.hankel1(v, z) = <ufunc 'hankel1'>

Hankel function of the first kind

Parameters:

v : array_like

Order (float).

z : array_like

Argument (float or complex).

Returns:

out : Values of the Hankel function of the first kind.

hankel1e
this function with leading exponential behavior stripped off.

Notes

A wrapper for the AMOS [R359] routine zbesh, which carries out the computation using the relation,

\[H^{(1)}_v(z) = \frac{2}{\imath\pi} \exp(-\imath \pi v/2) K_v(z \exp(-\imath\pi/2))\]

where \(K_v\) is the modified Bessel function of the second kind. For negative orders, the relation

\[H^{(1)}_{-v}(z) = H^{(1)}_v(z) \exp(\imath\pi v)\]

is used.
