public static double AiryBi( double x )
Public Shared Function AiryBi ( x As Double ) As Double
public: static double AiryBi( double x )
static member AiryBi : x : float -> float
The value Bi(x).
The Airy functions appear in quantum mechanics in the semiclassical WKB solution to the wave functions in a potential.
For negative arguments, Bi(x) is oscilatory. For positive arguments, it increases exponentially with increasing x.
While the notation Bi(x) was chosen simply as a natural complement to Ai(x), it has influenced the common nomenclature for this function, which is now often called the "Bairy function".
