# scipy.special.i0¶

scipy.special.i0(x) = <ufunc 'i0'>

Modified Bessel function of order 0.

Defined as,

$I_0(x) = \sum_{k=0}^\infty \frac{(x^2/4)^k}{(k!)^2} = J_0(\imath x),$

where $$J_0$$ is the Bessel function of the first kind of order 0.

Parameters: x : array_like Argument (float) I : ndarray Value of the modified Bessel function of order 0 at x.

Notes

The range is partitioned into the two intervals [0, 8] and (8, infinity). Chebyshev polynomial expansions are employed in each interval.

This function is a wrapper for the Cephes [R374] routine i0.
