### Numerical evaluation of Hurwitz zeta function

Is there a way to evaluate numerically the Hurwitz zeta function $$\zeta(s,a) = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{1}{(n+a)^{s}}$$ that is more efficient (i.e., quick and precise) than simply explicitly adding ...

### Real roots plot of the modified bessel function

Could anyone point me a program so i can calculate the roots of $$K_{ia}(2 \pi)=0$$ here $K_{ia}(x)$ is the modified Bessel function of second kind with (pure complex)index 'k' :D My conjecture ...

### Kummer U function: U(a,a+1/2,z)

Is there any way to simplify $U(a,a+1/2,z)$ or relate it to any other common special functions such as the incomplete beta function or the incomplete gamma function? Here, $U(a,b,z)$ is Kummer's U ...

### Find bound on order of Bessel function

I need to evaluate and store the first significant ($n$) orders for a given abscissa for the Bessel functions of the first kind. That is, $J_v(x), \ v \in [0, n]$. Here significant means that I want ...

### How to calculate Bessel Function of the first kind fast?

I have wrote a C++ code to calculate the first kind of Bessel Functon by its infinite series definition. I took the sum of the first 20 series as the value of Bessel Function, which is same as MATLBA ...

### Numerical approximation for log of incomplete beta function

Is there any known numerical approach to directly compute the log of the incomplete beta function? I would like to be able to compute $$\log\left( \int_0^u x^{a-1} (1-x)^{b-1} dx \right)$$ ...

### Computing the inverse Jacobi function $\mathrm{arccd}$ with elliptic integrals

According to page 42 of 1, $\operatorname{arccd}(x, k)=F\left(\arcsin\left(\sqrt{\frac{1 - x^2}{1 - k^2x^2}}\right), k\right)$, where $F(\phi, k)=\int_0^\phi \frac{dt}{\sqrt{1 - k^2\sin^2t^2}}$, and ...

### Numerical values of the Jacobi elliptic function sn: Wolfram Alpha vs. Maple vs. C++?

I have a problem to check the validity of an algorithm I've implemented in C++ to compute the Jacobi elliptic function $\mathrm{sn}(u, k)$ (inspired and improved from Numerical Recipes 3rd edition). I ...
