Special Functions Model
written by Wolfgang Christian
EJS Special Functions Model shows how to access special functions in the OSP numerics package. The simulation displays a graph of the special function over the given range as well as the value of the selected function at a single point.

The following special functions can be displayed:
  • Legendre polynomials Pn(x)
  • associated Legendre functions Pnm(x)
  • Laguerre polynomials Ln(x)
  • associated Laguerre polynomials Lnm(x)
  • Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind Tn(x)
  • Chebyshev polynomials of the second kind Un(x)
  • Bessel functions Jn(x)
A description of the EJS special functions along with links to more information about the functions are provided.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
