Dataplot Vol 2 Vol 1

# LV

Name:
LV (LET)
Type:
Library Function
Purpose:
Compute the modified Struve function.
Description:
The modified Struve function can be expressed as:

where v is the order of the modified Struve function and is the gamma function.

Dataplot computes this function using the STVL0, STVL1, and STVLV routines from "Computation of Special Functions" (see the Reference section below).

Syntax 1:
LET <y> = LV(<x>,<v>)             <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <x> is a number, variable or parameter;
<v> is a number, parameter, or variable;
<y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> and <v> are) where the computed modified Struve function values are stored;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

Dataplot supports the modified Struve function for non-negative real x and for orders between -8.5 and 12.5. This syntax is used for arbitrary order.

Syntax 2:
LET <y> = L0(<x>)             <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <x> is a number, variable or parameter;
<y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> is) where the computed modified Struve function values are stored;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

Dataplot supports the modified Struve function for non-negative real x. This syntax is used for the modified Struve function of order 0.

Syntax 3:
LET <y> = L1(<x>)             <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification>
where <x> is a number, variable or parameter;
<y> is a variable or a parameter (depending on what <x> is) where the computed modified Struve function values are stored;
and where the <SUBSET/EXCEPT/FOR qualification> is optional.

Dataplot supports the modified Struve function for non-negative real x. This syntax is used for the modified Struve function of order 1.

Examples:
LET A = LV(2.3,1)
LET A = LV(X,A1)
LET X2 = LV(X1,4) FOR X1 = 0.1 0.1 3.0
