Bessel-Ke function for complex numbers

Calculator for the logarithmically scaled modified Bessel function Kn (z) second kind

Bessel-Ke function Kn (x) of the second kind

The Bessel-Ke function calculates the exponentially scaled modified Bessel function Kn (z) of the second kind. The modified Bessel functions do not show an oscillating but an exponential behavior. BesselKe (n, z) is a solution to the modified Bessel differential equation.

This function expects a complex number as argument z . Bessel functions for real numbers can be found here.

To perform the calculation, enter the complex number and the order number. Then click on the 'Calculate' button.
