[tex]2\frac{dC_\nu}{dy} = C_{\nu-1}(y) + C_{\nu + 1}(y)[/tex]

Then let [itex]y = f(x)[/itex] and use the chain rule.

Identities like this can usually be found on wikipedia, and for something as studied and used as frequently as the Bessel Functions, are generally correct.

For a more 'official' reference, see something like http://www.math.sfu.ca/~cbm/aands/page_437.htm (scans of a reference book).

I know that

[tex]z\frac{d}{dz}K_v(z)+vK_v(z)=-zK_{v-1}(z)[/tex]

but I was confused when we have more complicated arguments such as

[tex]z=\sqrt{x^2+x}[/tex].

But after your posting, I have now a simple method to move from simple to more complicated arguments. So, I can say the following:

[tex]\frac{f(z)}{f'(z)}\frac{d}{dz}K_v(f(z))+vK_v(f(z))=-f(z)K_{v-1}(f(z))[/tex]

Am I right?

Best regards
