Hi everyone,

I have an equation that contains the derivative of the Bessel Function of the first kind. I need to evaluate Jn'(x) for small values of x (x<<1). I know that Jn(x) is (x)n/(2n*n!). What is it for the derivative?

Hi !

You can derivate the series expansion or alternatively expand the formal derivative. Both methods leads to the same result.
