Bessel polynomials


Bessel polynomials

In mathematics, the Bessel polynomials are an orthogonal sequence of polynomials. There are a number of different but closely related definitions. The definition favored by mathematicians is given by the series (Krall & Fink, 1948)

:y_n(x)=sum_{k=0}^nfrac{(n+k)!}{(n-k)!k!},left(frac{x}{2} ight)^k

Another definition, favored by electrical engineers, is sometimes known as the reverse Bessel polynomials (See Grosswald 1978, Berg 2000).

: heta_n(x)=x^n,y_n(1/x)=sum_{k=0}^nfrac{(2n-k)!}{(n-k)!k!},frac{x^k}{2^{n-k

The coefficients of the second definition are the same as the first but in reverse order. For example, the third order Bessel polynomial is

:y_3(x)=15x^3+15x^2+6x+1,

while the third order reverse Bessel polynomial is

: heta_3(x)=x^3+6x^2+15x+15,

The reverse Bessel polynomial is used in the design of Bessel electronic filters

Properties

Definition in terms of Bessel functions

The Bessel polynomial may also be defined using Bessel functions from which the polynomial draws its name.:y_n(x)=,x^{n} heta_n(1/x),: heta_n(x)=sqrt{frac{2}{pi,x^{n+1/2}e^{x}K_{(n+1/2)}(x):y_n(x)=sqrt{frac{2}{pi x,e^{1/x}K_{(n+1/2)}(1/x)

where K_n(x) is a modified Bessel function of the second kind and y_n(x) is the reverse polynomial (pag 7 and 34 Grosswald 1978).

Definition as a hypergeometric function

The Bessel polynomial may also be defined as a hypergeometric function (Dita, 2006)

:y_n(x)=,_2F_0(-n,n+1;;-x/2)

The reverse Bessel polynomial may be defined as a generalized Laguerre polynomial:

: heta_n(x)=frac{n!}{(-2)^n},L_n^{-2n-1}(2x)

from which it follows that it may also be defined as a hypergeometric function:

: heta_n(x)=frac{(-2n)_n}{(-2)^n},,_1F_1(-n;-2n;-2x)

where (-2n)_n is the Pochhammer symbol (rising factorial).

Recursion

The Bessel polynomial may also be defined by a recursion formula:

:y_0(x)=1,:y_1(x)=x+1,:y_n(x)=(2n!-!1)x,y_{n-1}(x)+y_{n-2}(x),

and

: heta_0(x)=1,: heta_1(x)=x+1,: heta_n(x)=(2n!-!1) heta_{n-1}(x)+x^2 heta_{n-2}(x),

Differential Equation

The Bessel polynomial obeys the following differential equation:

:x^2frac{d^2y_n(x)}{dx^2}+2(x!+!1)frac{dy_n(x)}{dx}-n(n+1)y_n(x)=0

and

:xfrac{d^2 heta_n(x)}{dx^2}-2(x!+!n)frac{d heta_n(x)}{dx}+2n, heta_n(x)=0
