    Maxima 5.20.1 calculus software

    Hi,

    Ik have a problem with computing bessel functions in maxima.
    First I load(othopoly)in maxima
    Then in the commandline Legendre_p(3,x); ths works.

    If I try Bessel_J(3,x)the result is jus the same.

    Bessel_j(0,0) works ans =1

    Can someone explain this??

    thanks for your help

    1. Please make sure you use the correct case (that is legendre_p and bessel_j not Legendre_p and Bessel_j)

    2. bessel_j(3,x) is not a polynomial so exactly what do you expect it to evaluate to?
