scipy.special.hankel2e

scipy.special.hankel2e(v, z) = <ufunc 'hankel2e'>

Exponentially scaled Hankel function of the second kind

Defined as:

hankel2e(v, z) = hankel2(v, z) * exp(1j * z)
Parameters:

v : array_like

Order (float).

z : array_like

Argument (float or complex).

Returns:

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

Notes

A wrapper for the AMOS [R396] routine zbesh, which carries out the computation using the relation,

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

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.
