y0, y1, yn — Bessel functions of the second kind
Synopsis
#include <math.h> double y0(double x); double y1(double x); double yn(int n, double x);
Description
The y0(), y1(), and yn() functions shall compute Bessel functions of x of the second kind of orders 0, 1, and n, respectively.
An application wishing to check for error situations should set errno to zero and call feclearexcept(FE_ALL_EXCEPT) before calling these functions. On return, if errno is nonzero or fetestexcept(FE_INVALID  FE_DIVBYZERO  FE_OVERFLOW  FE_UNDERFLOW) is nonzero, an error has occurred.
Return Value
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return the relevant Bessel value of x of the second kind.
If x is NaN, NaN shall be returned.
If the x argument to these functions is negative, HUGE_VAL or NaN shall be returned, and a domain error may occur.
If x is 0.0, HUGE_VAL shall be returned and a pole error may occur.
If the correct result would cause underflow, 0.0 shall be returned and a range error may occur.
If the correct result would cause overflow, HUGE_VAL or 0.0 shall be returned and a range error may occur.
Errors
These functions may fail if:
 Domain Error

The value of x is negative.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is nonzero, then errno shall be set to [EDOM]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is nonzero, then the invalid floatingpoint exception shall be raised.
 Pole Error

The value of x is zero.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is nonzero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is nonzero, then the dividebyzero floatingpoint exception shall be raised.
 Range Error

The correct result would cause overflow.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is nonzero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is nonzero, then the overflow floatingpoint exception shall be raised.
 Range Error

The value of x is too large in magnitude, or the correct result would cause underflow.
If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) is nonzero, then errno shall be set to [ERANGE]. If the integer expression (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) is nonzero, then the underflow floatingpoint exception shall be raised.
The following sections are informative.
Examples
None.
Application Usage
On error, the expressions (math_errhandling & MATH_ERRNO) and (math_errhandling & MATH_ERREXCEPT) are independent of each other, but at least one of them must be nonzero.
Rationale
None.
Future Directions
None.
