StruveL[n, z]
gives the modified Struve function L_n(z).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • L_n(z) for integer n is related to the ordinary Struve function by L_n(i​z)=-ie^(-i​n​pi/2)H_n(z).
  • StruveL[n, z] has a branch cut discontinuity in the complex z plane running from -∞ to 0.
  • For certain special arguments, StruveL automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • StruveL can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • StruveL automatically threads over lists.
