    There's a really useful facility available - it's called Google. Give it a try and then come back with any questions.

    Bessel Functions are the solutions to a particular differential equation. They are non-elementary functions which can be approximated with and infinite series.

    The other name for them is cylinder functions (Zylinderfunktionen), because they are the solutions to Laplace's equation in cylindrical coordinates.
