# Anger function

The function

 (*)

which satisfies the inhomogeneous Bessel equation:

For integers is the Bessel function of order (cf. Bessel functions). For non-integer the following expansion is valid:

The asymptotic expansion

is valid for and .

The functions have been named after C.T. Anger [1], who studied functions of the type (*), but with as the upper limit of the integral.
