BESSELY function

This article describes the formula syntax and usage of the BESSELY  function in Microsoft Excel.

Description

Returns the Bessel function, which is also called the Weber function or the Neumann function.

Syntax

BESSELY(X, N)

The BESSELY function syntax has the following arguments:

• X    Required. The value at which to evaluate the function.

• N    Required. The order of the function. If n is not an integer, it is truncated.

Remarks

• If x is nonnumeric, BESSELY returns the #VALUE! error value.

• If n is nonnumeric, BESSELY returns the #VALUE! error value.

• If n < 0, BESSELY returns the #NUM! error value.

• The n-th order Bessel function of the variable x is: Example
