This content dictionary contains symbols to describe the Airy functions and associated functions.

The symbol AiryAi defines the unary Airy Ai function. This is a solution to the equation:

$$w^{\prime\prime}-x*w=0$$

It is linearly independant to the Airy Bi function represented by the AiryBi symbol in this Content Dictionary and is specifically given by:

$$Ai(x)=Ai(0)~f(z)-(-Ai^\prime (0))~g(z)$$

where:

$$f(z)=\sum_{k=0}^\infty 3^k{\left (\frac{1}{3}\right )}_k \frac{z^{3k}}{(3k)!}$$

and:

$$g(z)=\sum_{k=0}^\infty 3^k{\left (\frac{2}{3}\right )}_k \frac{z^{3k+1}}{(3k+1)!}$$

The symbol AiryBi defines the unary Airy Bi function. This is a solution to the equation:

$$w^{\prime\prime}-x*w=0$$

It is linearly independant to the Airy Ai function represented by the AiryAi symbol in this Content Dictionary and is specifically given by:

$$Bi(x)=\sqrt{3}(Bi(0)~f(z)+(-Bi^\prime (0))~g(z))$$

where:

$$f(z)=\sum_{k=0}^\infty 3^k{\left (\frac{1}{3}\right )}_k \frac{z^{3k}}{(3k)!}$$

and:

$$g(z)=\sum_{k=0}^\infty 3^k{\left (\frac{2}{3}\right )}_k \frac{z^{3k+1}}{(3k+1)!}$$
