CylinderU, CylinderV

Parabolic Cylinder Functions

CylinderD

Whittaker's Parabolic Function

 Calling Sequence CylinderU(a, x) CylinderV(a, x) CylinderD(a, x)

Parameters

 a - algebraic expression (the degree) x - algebraic expression (the argument)

Description

 • CylinderU and CylinderV are the parabolic cylinder functions. They satisfy the first real standard distinct form of the Parabolic Cylinder equation:

$\mathrm{y\text{'}\text{'}}-\left(\frac{{x}^{2}}{4}+a\right)y=0$

 • CylinderD and CylinderU are related in the following way:

$\mathrm{CylinderD}\left(-a-\frac{1}{2},x\right)=\mathrm{CylinderU}\left(a,x\right).$
