Abstract:

-T-061102-B-53-A1-T-061102-B-53-A-20bessel functions, tablesdata , continued fractions, complex numbersmathematical tables, computationTen-place tables of spherical Bessel functions of complex argument with real and imaginary values from 0.001 to 1000 in varying increments for 100 consecutive orders are presented. The method used to generate these tables is based on a continued fraction representation of the ratio of Bessel functions of consecutive order. This method retains a high degree Bessel functions of consecutive order. This method retains a high degree of accuracy in a finite digit machine, incorporates a terminating condition, is fast and simple, and is versatile enough to find wide application as a method for continued fractions in general.
