1  Purpose

nag_bessel_i1_scaled (s18cfc) returns a value of the scaled modified Bessel function e - x I 1 x .

2  Specification

#include <nag.h>
#include <nags.h>
double  nag_bessel_i1_scaled (double x)

3  Description

nag_bessel_i1_scaled (s18cfc) evaluates an approximation to e - x I 1 x , where I 1  is a modified Bessel function of the first kind. The scaling factor e - x  removes most of the variation in I 1 x .
The function uses the same Chebyshev expansions as nag_bessel_i1 (s18afc), which returns the unscaled value of I 1 x .

5  Arguments

1:     xdoubleInput
On entry: the argument x  of the function.

6  Error Indicators and Warnings

None.

7  Accuracy

Relative errors in the argument are attenuated when propagated into the function value. When the accuracy of the argument is essentially limited by the machine precision, the accuracy of the function value will be similarly limited by at most a small multiple of the machine precision.

8  Further Comments

None.

9  Example

The following program reads values of the argument x  from a file, evaluates the function at each value of x  and prints the results.
