BESSEL EQUATIONS AND BESSEL FUNCTIONS Bessel functions form a class of the so called special functions . They are im- portant in math as well as in physical sciences (physics and engineering). They are especially important in solving boundary values problems in cylindrical coordi- nates. First we dene another important function: the Gamma function which is used in the series expansion of the Bessel functions, then we construct the Bessel functions and 1. The Gamma Function The Gamma function (also called Euler�s integral ) is the function dened for x > 0 by

( ) = ds : The improper integral dening  is convergent for x > 0. To see why, note that for every x > 0, lim !1 = 0 Thus there exists M > 0 such that e for s > M . This implies that ds ds Also for (0 ; M ), e and ds ds =0 We have then ds ds ds This shows that ( ) is well dened for x > 0. The most important property of the Gamma function is given in the following lemma. Lemma 1. The function satises the following ( + 1) = ( x > Proof. The proof is simply an integration by parts ds ds ds By taking the limit as !1 , we get (

+ 1) = ( Date :March31,2014.
Page 2
BESSEL EQUATIONS AND BESSEL FUNCTIONS It can be shown that  has derivatives of all orders for x > 0 and that  has a unique extremum (global minimum) on the interval (0 ). The minimum is reached at a number (1 2) and ( 1. Furthermore,  satises lim ( ) = and lim !1 ( ) = Graph of (x) over (0, 1 2 1 We can use the fundamental property to extend  as a smooth functions to nf g (the whole real line except 0 and the negative integers). First we extend 

to the interval ( 0) by dening ( ) = ( + 1) for 0) (note the above denition makes sense since +1 (0 1) and ( +1) is dened by the integral). Once,  is dened on ( 0), we extend it to the interval ( 1) by using the same property. More precisely, if  is dened on the interval ( j; 1)) with , then we extend it to the interval ( + 1) ) by using the fundamental property. We have in particular that lim ( for Now we compute some values of the Gamma function. (1) = ds = 1 By using the fundamental property of

, we get easily its values at the positive integers. (2) = (1 + 1) = 1(1) = 1 (3) = (2 + 1) = 2(2) = 2 = 2! (4) = (3 + 1) = 3(3) = 3 2! = 3! ( + 1) = The Gamma function appears as an interpolation of the factorial function.

BESSEL EQUATIONS AND BESSEL FUNCTIONS Graph of (x) −1 −2 −3 To compute (1 2) we use the value of the Gaussian integral dt  = (you have probably encountered this integral in Multivariable Calculus (MAC2313) or in Prob./Statistics class).

In the following calculation, we have made the substi- tution ds = 2 dt  : The Gamma function satises many other identities such: Reection formula : ( )(1 ) = sin x = 0 Duplication formula : (2 ) = ( ) (2 = 0 2. Bessel�s Equation Bessel�s equation of order (with 0) is the second order dierential equation (1) 00 xy + ( = 0 In order to nd all solutions we need two independent solutions. We are going to construct the independent solutions for x > 0. 2.1. Construction of a rst solution. Note that = 0 is a

singular point of the equation. More precisely, it is a regular singular point (see your notes from the rst dierential equations class, MAP2302). For such dierential equations, we can use the method of Frobenius to construct series solutions. We seek a (formal) series solution (2) =0 =0

grouping the like terms and simplifying, we obtain + (( + 1) +1 =2 (( = 0 In order for this series to be identically zero, each coecient must be zero. We have then = 0 + 1) = 0 = 0 ; j = 2 Since = 0, then the rst equation implies that must satisfy = 0 This is the indicial equation of the Bessel equation. The indicial roots are and  : Consider the case . The second equation becomes (2 + 1) = 0 = 0 (since  > 0) For 2 the recurrence relation becomes = 0 (2 Since = 0, the above relation gives 3(2 + 3) = 0 ; c 5(2 + 5) = 0 ; c = 0 That is, all coecients with

odd indices are 0 ( odd = 0). For the coecients with even indices, we have 2(2 + 2) 4(1 + 4(2 + 4) 1) (2!)(1 + )(2 + 6(2 + 6) 1) (3!)(1 + )(2 + )(3 + A proof by induction gives 1) !2 (1 + )(2 + ; j = 1

BESSEL EQUATIONS AND BESSEL FUNCTIONS A formal solution is therefore =0 =0 1) !2 (1 + )(2 + We are going to select and use the Gamma function to rewrite the series solution in a more compact form. It follows from the fundamental property of the Gamma function that ( + 1 + ) = ( )( = ( )( 1 + )( 1 + = ( )( 1 + (1 + )(1 + Equivalently, (1 +

)(2 + ) = ( + 1 + (1 + We select as (1 + With this choice of , the particular series solution becomes ) = =0 1) !( + 1 + This solution is known as the Bessel function of the rst kind of order Now we determine the domain where the series converges. Note that ) = =0 1) !( + 1 + The last series is a power series in ( x= 2) . To nd its radius of convergence, we can use the ratio test: lim !1 1) +1 ((1 + )!( + 2 + )) 1) !( + 1 + )) = lim !1 + 1)( + 1 + = 0 The radius of convergence is innite (the power series converges

to an analytic function on ). The function ) is dened for 0. 2.2. Construction of a second solution. Recall that the indicial roots of the Bessel equation are . We have used to construct the solution ). We can redo the above construction with . However, this can be done only if 62 . In this case a second independent solution of Bessel�s equation is ) = =0 1) !( + 1 Note that is not dened at = 0. We have lim The general solution of equation in (0 ) is ) = AJ ) + BJ with and constants.

BESSEL EQUATIONS AND BESSEL FUNCTIONS When , the situation is a little

more involved. The rst solution is ) = =0 1) !( )! If we try to dene by using the recurrence relations for the coecients, then starting with = 0, we can get 2(2 4(1 4(4 1) (2!)(1 )(2 2( 1) 1) 1)!2 2( 1) (1 )(2 At the order 2 however we get 2( 1) = 0 This is a contradiction since 2( 1) = 0. Thus, the recurrence relations will not lead to a series solution. Another attempt to dene is to dene it as ) = lim In this case, we get back either and and are dependent solutions of the equations. More precisely, we have the following lemma. Lemma. We have ) = ( 1)

Proof. For 62 (and close to ), we have ) = =0 1) !2 ( + 1 Recall that lim ! ( for = 0 or . When , ( + 1 tends to 0 or a negative integer for = 0 1). For such values of the coecients of in the series above approaches 0: lim 1) !2 ( + 1 = 0 We get then, ) = lim ) = 1) !2 ( + 1 and after using the fundamental property of the Gamma function we obtain ) = 1) !2 )! =0 1) )!2 = ( 1) Now we indicate how to construct a second independent solution of equation (1) when .

We dene as: ) = lim ) = lim 1) It can be proved that the function is a solution of the Bessel equation of order and that and are independent (see for example R.Courant and D. Hilbert, Method of Mathematical Physics , vol. 2, or H. Sagan, Boundary and Eigenvalue Problems of Mathematical Physics ). This solution is called the Bessel function of the

second kind of order . It can also be proved that lim ) = 1 Another method to obtain a second solution of the Bessel equation in the excep- tional case is to seek it in the form ) = ) ln The coecients are then found by a recurrence relation. The explicit expression of the ) is given below. Its derivation can be found in advanced texts about special function.

It is shown that for large we have x cos and x cos In fact the -th Bessel function has the following behavior x cos (2 + 1) for large This approximation shows that has innitely many positive zeros that tends to innity. More precisely, we have following proposition about the zeros of Bessel functions. Proposition 1. For every ,

the positive zeros of form an increasing unbounded sequence. That is, the solution set of the equation ) = 0 ; x > forms a sequence < x < x < x < x with lim !1 The proof of this proposition is beyond the aim of this course. For + 1 , the Bessel functions are elementary functions. This means that ) can be expressed algebraically in terms of sin cos and . The following proposition gives the expressions of some Bessel functions with such indices. Proposition 2. We have the following relations ) = x sin x; ) = x cos x; ) = x sin cos ) = x cos + sin Proof. We prove

An integral representation of There is an interesting representation of the Bessel functions of the rst kind with integer order in terms of a denite integral. We have the following proposition. Proposition 3. For , we have ) = cos ( n sin d : Proof. Recall the Taylor expansion of the exponential function =0 (the series converges uniformly and absolutely

for j for every R > 0). We have then xt= =0 and e x= =0 1) The product is xt= x= =0 =0 1) =0 =0 1) !)( !) We rewrite this relation as a power series in (so the coecients will depend on ). x= 2)( (1 =t )) =1 ) + =1 We need to show that ) = ).

The last series is precisely ). We have then ) = ( 1) ) = The expansion of e x= 2)( (1 =t )) is therefore x= 2)( (1 =t )) ) + =1 1) Now we

evaluate the left side and the right side of the above expression for i = cos sin . For , we have 1) = e in + ( 1) in 2 cos( n ) if = 2 is even sin( n ) if = 2 + 1 is odd

BESSEL EQUATIONS AND BESSEL FUNCTIONS 15 and x= 2)( (1 =t )) = e ix sin = cos( sin ) + sin( sin It follows that cos( sin )+ sin( sin ) = )+2 =1 ) cos(2 p )+2 =0 +1 ) sin(2 +1) By equating the real and imaginary parts, we get cos( sin ) = ) + 2 =1 ) cos(2 p sin( sin ) = 2 =0 +1 ) sin(2 + 1) Recall the orthogonality of the trigonometric system cos( j ) cos( k ) = cos( j ) cos( k ) = 1 if k ; 0 if k : By using

these orthogonality relations and the above series, we get cos( sin ) cos( n d ) + =1 ) cos(2 p cos( n d ) if is even if is odd Similarly, sin( sin ) sin( n d =0 +1 ) sin(2 + 1) sin( n d ) if is odd if is even By adding these relations we get for that [cos( sin ) cos( n ) + sin( sin ) sin( n )] d which proves the proposition. A immediate consequence of the integral representation is the following Corollary. For every , we have j and lim !1 ) = 0
