- scipy.special.riccati_jn(n, x)¶
Compute Ricatti-Bessel function of the first kind and its derivative.
The Ricatti-Bessel function of the first kind is defined as \(x j_n(x)\), where \(j_n\) is the spherical Bessel function of the first kind of order \(n\).
This function computes the value and first derivative of the Ricatti-Bessel function for all orders up to and including n.
n : int
Maximum order of function to compute
x : float
Argument at which to evaluate
jn : ndarray
Value of j0(x), ..., jn(x)
jnp : ndarray
First derivative j0’(x), ..., jn’(x)
The computation is carried out via backward recurrence, using the relation DLMF 10.51.1 [R445].
