bessel_j0_real_vector evaluates an approximation to the Bessel function of the first kind for an array of arguments , for .

Note: , so the approximation need only consider .

The function is based on three Chebyshev expansions:

For ,

For ,

where ,

and ,

with .

For near zero, . This approximation is used when is sufficiently small for the result to be correct to machine precision.

For very large , it becomes impossible to provide results with any reasonable accuracy (see Accuracy), hence the function fails. Such arguments contain insufficient information to determine the phase of oscillation of ; only the amplitude, , can be determined and this is returned on failure. The range for which this occurs is roughly related to machine precision; the function will fail if .
