ParabolicCylinderD[, z]
gives the parabolic cylinder function D_nu(z).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • D_nu(z) satisfies the Weber differential equation .
  • For certain special arguments, ParabolicCylinderD automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • ParabolicCylinderD[, z] has a branch cut discontinuity in the complex z plane running from -∞ to 0.
