Notes

bessel_k0_real_vector evaluates an approximation to the modified Bessel function of the second kind for an array of arguments , for .

Note: is undefined for and the function will fail for such arguments.

The function is based on five Chebyshev expansions:

For ,

For ,

For ,

For ,

For near zero, , where denotes Euler’s constant. This approximation is used when is sufficiently small for the result to be correct to machine precision.

For large , where there is a danger of underflow due to the smallness of , the result is set exactly to zero.
