"Killing Mie Softly": Analytic Integrals for Resonant Scattering States

  title={"Killing Mie Softly": Analytic Integrals for Resonant Scattering States},
  author={Ross C. McPhedran and B.Stout},
  journal={arXiv: Mathematical Physics},
We consider integrals of products of Bessel functions and of spherical Bessel functions, combined with a Gaussian factor guaranteeing convergence at infinity. Explicit representations are obtained for the integrals, building on those in the 1992 paper by McPhedran, Dawes and Scott. Attention is paid to those sums with a distributive part arising as the Gaussian tends towards a constant. Taking this limit provides explicit analytic formulae for integrals which are difficult to evaluate…

On a bessel function integral

This work reduces the integral of √kK, whereη, K, k andb are all positive real numbers, to a linear combination of two integrals, which can be expressed as a difference of two Shkarofsky functions, or evaluated numerically.

Relativistic plasma dispersion functions

The known properties of plasma dispersion functions (PDF’s) for waves in weakly relativistic, magnetized, thermal plasmas are reviewed and a large number of new results are presented. The PDF’s

NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions

This handbook results from a 10-year project conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology with an international group of expert authors and validators and is destined to replace its predecessor, the classic but long-outdated Handbook of Mathematical Functions, edited by Abramowitz and Stegun.
