scipy.special.pbwa¶

scipy.special.pbwa(a, x) = <ufunc 'pbwa'>

Parabolic cylinder function W.

The function is a particular solution to the differential equation

$y'' + \left(\frac{1}{4}x^2 - a\right)y = 0,$

for a full definition see section 12.14 in [R564].

Parameters: a : array_like Real parameter x : array_like Real argument w : scalar or ndarray Value of the function wp : scalar or ndarray Value of the derivative in x

Notes

The function is a wrapper for a Fortran routine by Zhang and Jin [R565]. The implementation is accurate only for |a|, |x| < 5 and returns NaN outside that range.
