Notes

airy_bi_deriv_vector calculates an approximate value for the derivative of the Airy function for an array of arguments , for . It is based on a number of Chebyshev expansions.

For ,

where , and and are expansions in the variable .

For ,

where and are expansions in .

For ,

where is an expansion in .

For ,

where is an expansion in .

For ,

where and is an expansion in .

For the square of the machine precision, the result is set directly to . This saves time and avoids possible underflows in calculation.

For large negative arguments, it becomes impossible to calculate a result for the oscillating function with any accuracy so the function must fail. This occurs for , where is the machine precision.

For large positive arguments, where grows in an essentially exponential manner, there is a danger of overflow so the function must fail.
