bessel_y1_real_vector evaluates an approximation to the Bessel function of the second kind for an array of arguments , for .

Note: is undefined for and the function will fail for such arguments.

The function is based on four 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 extremely small , there is a danger of overflow in calculating and for such arguments the function will fail.

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 .
