Zero's of the modified Bessel functions,

  1. Feb 6, 2004 #1
    I have the solution to a particular D.E. (Airy's D.E.) which is in terms of Airy functions, namely a linear combination of Ai(x) and Bi(x), to which I have to fit to the boundary conditions. Both Ai(x) and Bi(x) can be cast into a form which involves both modified Bessel functions of the first and second kind. The bondary conditions are such that the solution must be zero at the boundary. Therefore my question is this,

    What are the zero's of the modified Bessel functions of the first and second kind?
