# Numerical solution of the modified Bessel equation

@article{Carley2011NumericalSO, title={Numerical solution of the modified Bessel equation}, author={Michael Carley}, journal={Ima Journal of Numerical Analysis}, year={2011}, volume={33}, pages={1048-1062} }

A Green’s function based solver for the modified Bessel equation has been developed with the primary motivation of solving the Poisson and biharmonic equations in cylindrical geometries. The method is implemented using a Discrete Hankel Transform and a Green’s function based on the modified Bessel functions of the first and second kind. The computation of these Bessel functions has been implemented to avoid scaling problems due to their exponential and singular behaviour, allowing the method to…
