scipy.special.hankel2

scipy.special.hankel2(v, z) = <ufunc 'hankel2'>

Hankel function of the second kind

Parameters:

v : array_like

Order (float).

z : array_like

Argument (float or complex).

Returns:

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

this function with leading exponential behavior stripped off.

Notes

A wrapper for the AMOS [R378] routine zbesh, which carries out the computation using the relation,

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

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

\[H^{(2)}_{-v}(z) = H^{(2)}_v(z) \exp(-\imath\pi v)\]

is used.
