An integral about Bessel function

  1. Sep 22, 2011 #1
    Is there somebody who knows the solution (closed form) for the integral
    where $a>0,b>0$ and $J(\cdot)$ the bessel function of the first kind with integer order?

    Reference, or solution from computer programs all are welcome. Thanks!

    even if belatedly believe that this property of bessel funtions is useful
    with the orthonormality of bessel functions
    $$\int^\infty_0 J_{n}(ax)J_{n}(bx)xdx=\frac{1}{a}\delta(a-b)$$
    $$\int^\infty_0\left(\frac{J_1(ax)}{x}\right)^{3}J_0(bx)xdx =\int^\infty_0\left(\frac{J_{1-1}+J_{1+1}}{2\cdot1}\right)^{3}J_0(bx)xdx=\dots$$
