SphericalBesselY

SphericalBesselY
gives the spherical Bessel function of the second kind .
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • SphericalBesselY has a branch cut discontinuity in the complex plane running from to .
  • Explicit symbolic forms for integer n can be obtained using FunctionExpand.
  • For certain special arguments, SphericalBesselY automatically evaluates to exact values.
