Integral of square of Bessel function

Hi there,

I am starting with the Bessel functions and have some problems with it. I am getting stuck with this equation. I could not find this kind of integral in the handbooks.

1. [tex]\int_0^aJ_0^2(bx)dx[/tex]


Besides of this, I have other equations in similar form but I think this integral is the key to solve others:

2. [tex]\int_0^\infty J_0^2(bx)e^{-\frac{x}{c}}dx[/tex]

3. [tex]\int_0^\infty J_0^2(bx)e^{-\frac{x^2}{c}}dx[/tex]

3. [tex]\int_0^\infty J_0^2(bx)\frac{x}{c}dx[/tex]


Please help me. It is highly appriciated.

I asked Maple, and got something in terms of the Struve H function.

[tex]\int _{0}^{a}\! \left( {{\rm J}_0\left(bx\right)} \right) ^{2}{dx}=-
a \left( -2\,{{\rm J}_0\left(ba\right)}+\pi \,
{{\rm J}_0\left(ba\right)}{\rm H}_1 \left(ba \right) -\pi \,
{{\rm J}_1\left(ba\right)}{\rm H}_0 \left(ba \right)
\right) /2
[/tex]

added: This is wrong. I for got the square. This is only [itex]\int _{0}^{a}\! {{\rm J}_0\left(bx\right)} {dx}[/itex]

Hi g_edgar,

Thank you for your reply. I tried with Maple too and I got this:

[tex]a*hypergeom([1/2, 1/2], [1, 1, 3/2], -a^2*b^2)[/tex]


The equation you got must be the result of this integral: [tex]\int _{0}^{a}\! {{\rm J}_0\left(bx\right)}{dx}[/tex]


I have to search for the generalized hypergeometric function. I have a little knowledge on this.

I looked these up in the book "integrals of bessel functions" by Luke, McGraw-Hill 1962.

Hi there,

I am starting with the Bessel functions and have some problems with it. I am getting stuck with this equation. I could not find this kind of integral in the handbooks.

1. [tex]\int_0^aJ_0^2(bx)dx[/tex]
[tex]
\int_0^1 dt \ J_0^2(b t) & = & 2\ J_1(b) \sum_{k=0}^{\infty}
\frac{(-1)^k}{2k+1} J_{2k+1}(b).
[/tex]


2. [tex]\int_0^\infty J_0^2(bx)e^{-\frac{x}{c}}dx[/tex]

[tex]
\int_0^\infty dt e^{-pt} J_0^2(bt) & = & \frac{k {\mathbf{K}}(k)}{\pi b}
[/tex]

for

[tex]
Re(p)>0
[/tex]

where
[tex]
k^2 & = & \frac{4 b^2}{p^2 + 4 b^2}
[/tex]
and
[tex]
{\mathbf{K}}(k)}
[/tex]
is the complete elliptic integral of the first kind.



3. [tex]\int_0^\infty J_0^2(bx)e^{-\frac{x^2}{c}}dx[/tex]

[tex]
\int_0^\infty dt e^{-p^2t^2} J_0^2(bt) & = & \frac{\Gamma(\frac{1}{2})}{2p}
\ _3F_3 (\frac{1}{2},1,\frac{1}{2}; 1,1,1 | - \frac{b^2}{p^2} ),
[/tex]
[tex]
for Re(p^2)>0
[/tex]

3. [tex]\int_0^\infty J_0^2(bx)\frac{x}{c}dx[/tex]

Are you sure this converges? Given the asymptotic expansion of [tex]J_0[/tex] I'm skeptical.

Thanks jasonRF for the results. I have that book too. Could you tell me in which parts and pages you found that?

I made a mistake with the last one. It should be:
[tex]\int_0^a J_0^2(bx)\frac{x}{c}dx [/tex]

Hi there,

I found this integral at Gradshteyn:

[tex]\int_{0}^{1} x\, J_{\nu}(\alpha\,x)J_{\nu}(\beta\,x)\,dx = \frac{\beta J_{\nu-1}(\beta)J_{\nu}(\alpha) - \alpha J_{\nu-1}J_{\nu}(\beta)}{\alpha^2 - \beta^2}.[/tex]

Then, taking the limit [tex]\beta\rightarrow\alpha[/tex] you can find

[tex]\int_{0}^{1}x\,J_{\nu}^2(\alpha\,x) dx = -\frac{1}{2\alpha}\left[J_{\nu-1}(\alpha)J_{\nu}(\alpha) + \alpha J_{\nu-1}^{\prime}(\alpha)J_{\nu}(\alpha) - \alpha J_{\nu-1}(\alpha)J_{\nu}^{\prime}(\alpha)\right].[/tex]

I hope it is useful.
