Verify . . . . .(complex analysis)

  1. Apr 7, 2006 #1
    Complex analysis: Let J_n (z) be the Bessel function for a positive integer n of order n. Verify?

    J_n-1 (z) + J_n+1 (z) = ((2n)/z) J_n (z)

    Bessel Identity...


    For a Bessel function of the first kind [tex]J_n(z)[/tex]

    Identity confirmed:
    [tex]J_{n-1}(z) + J_{n+1}(z) = \frac{2\,n\,J_{n}(z)}{z} \; \; \; n > 0 \; \; \; z \neq 0[/tex]

    [tex]\Mfunction{BesselJ}(-1 + n,z) + \Mfunction{BesselJ}(1 + n,z) = \frac{2\,n\,\Mfunction{BesselJ}(n,z)}{z} \; \; \; n > 0 \; \; \; z \neq 0 [/tex]

    n = 1
    Attachment 1: LHS plot
    Attachment 2: RHS plot

    The x-intercepts and amplitudes appear to match, therefore this is an identity.
