NAME
       y0, y0f, y0l, y1, y1f, y1l, yn, ynf, ynl - Bessel functions of the second kind

SYNOPSIS
       #include <math.h>

       double y0(double x);
       double y1(double x);
       double yn(int n, double x);

       float y0f(float x);
       float y1f(float x);
       float ynf(int n, float x);

       long double y0l(long double x);
       long double y1l(long double x);
       long double ynl(int n, long double x);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       y0(), y1(), yn():
	   _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE
       y0f(), y0l(), y1f(), y1l(), ynf(), ynl():
	   _SVID_SOURCE || _BSD_SOURCE || _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600

DESCRIPTION
       The  y0()  and  y1() functions return Bessel functions of x of the second kind of orders 0
       and 1, respectively.  The yn() function returns the Bessel function of  x  of  the  second
       kind of order n.

       The value of x must be positive.

       The  y0f()  etc. and y0l() etc. functions are versions that take and return float and long
       double values, respectively.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, these functions return the appropriate Bessel value of the second kind for x.

       If x is a NaN, a NaN is returned.

       If x is negative, a domain error occurs, and the functions return  -HUGE_VAL,  -HUGE_VALF,
       or -HUGE_VALL, respectively.  (POSIX.1-2001 also allows a NaN return for this case.)

       If  x  is  0.0,	a  pole  error occurs, and the functions return -HUGE_VAL, -HUGE_VALF, or
       -HUGE_VALL, respectively.

       If the result underflows, a range error occurs, and the functions return 0.0

       If the result overflows, a  range  error  occurs,  and  the  functions  return  -HUGE_VAL,
       -HUGE_VALF,  or -HUGE_VALL, respectively.  (POSIX.1-2001 also allows a 0.0 return for this
       case.)

ERRORS
       See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has  occurred  when
       calling these functions.

       The following errors can occur:

       Domain error: x is negative
	      errno is set to EDOM.  An invalid floating-point exception (FE_INVALID) is raised.

       Pole error: x is 0.0
	      errno  is  set  to ERANGE (but see BUGS).  No FE_DIVBYZERO exception is returned by
	      fetestexcept(3) for this case.

       Range error: result underflow
	      errno is set to ERANGE.  No FE_UNDERFLOW exception is returned  by  fetestexcept(3)
	      for this case.

       Range error: result overflow
	      errno is not set for this case.  An overflow floating-point exception (FE_OVERFLOW)
	      is raised.

CONFORMING TO
       The functions returning double conform to SVr4, 4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.  The others are non-
       standard functions that also exist on the BSDs.

BUGS
       On  a  pole  error,  these  functions set errno to EDOM, instead of ERANGE as POSIX.1-2004
       requires.

       In glibc version 2.3.2 and earlier, these functions do not raise an invalid floating-point
       exception (FE_INVALID) when a domain error occurs.
