Bessel functions often arise in advanced engineering and scientific analyses such as the study of electric fields. These functions are usually not amenable to straightforward evaluation and, therefore, are often compiled in standard mathematical tables.
\(\begin{array}\\ x&1.8&2.0&2.2&2.4&2.6\\ J_1(x)&0.5815&0.5767&0.5560&0.5202&0.4708 \end{array}\)
Estimate \(J_1(2.1)\), (a) using an interpolating polynomial and (b) using cubic splines. Note that the true value is 0.5683

a} By using a fourth-order Newton's interpolating polynomial we found that \(\displaystyle{7}{\left({2.1}\right)}_{{{1}}}\) = 0.5683.
b) Using « cubic spline with not-a-knot end conditions yielded \(\displaystyle{J}{\left({2.1}\right)}_{{{1}}}={0.5683}\), however, using a. piecewise cubic Hermite interpolation resulted in \(\displaystyle{J}{\left({2.1}\right)}_{{{1}}}={0.5687}\).

Bessel functions often arise in advanced engineering analyses such as the study of electric fields. Here are some selected values for the zero-order Bessel function of the first kind.
\(\begin{array}\\ x&1.8&2.0&2.2&2.4&2.6\\ J_1(x)&0.5815&0.5767&0.5560&0.5202&0.4708 \end{array}\)

The following advanced exercise use a generalized ratio test to determine convergence of some series that arise in particular applications, including the ratio and root test, are not powerful enough to determine their convergence. The test states that if $ \(\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \frac{a_{2 n}}{a_{n}}<1 / 2\) then \(\displaystyle\sum{a}_{{{n}}}\) converges, while if \(\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \frac{a_{2 n+1}}{a_{n}}>1 / 2\) then \(\displaystyle\sum{a}_{{{n}}}\)  diverges. Let \(\displaystyle{a}_{{{n}}}={\frac{{{n}^{{{\ln{{n}}}}}}}{{{\left({\ln{{n}}}\right)}^{{{n}}}}}}\). Show that \(\frac{a_{2n}}{a_{n}} \rightarrow 0\) as \(\displaystyle{n}\rightarrow\infty\)

When two targets are presented close together in a rapid visual stream, the second target is often missed. Psychologists call this phenomenon the attentional blink (AB). A study published in Advances in Cognitive Psychology (July 2013) investigated whether simultaneous or preceding sounds could reduce AB. Twenty subjects were presented a rapid visual stream of symbols and letters on a computer screen and asked to identify the first and second letters (the targets). After several trials, the subject's AB magnitude was measured as the difference between the percentages of first target and second target letters correctly identified. Each subject performed the task under each of three conditions. In the Simultaneous condition, a sound (tone) was presented simultaneously with the second target; in the Alert condition, a sound was presented prior to the coming of the second target; and in the No-Tone condition, no sound was presented with the second target. Scatterplots of AB magnitude for each possible pair of conditions are shown below as well as the least squares line for each. a. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the steepest estimated slope? b. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the largest SSE? c. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the smallest estímate of σ?

Painful bone metastases are common in advanced prostate cancer. Physicians often order treatment with strontium-89 (89Sr), a radionuclide with a strong affinity for bone tissue. A patient is given a sample containing 4 mCi of \(\displaystyle{89}^{{{S}{r}}}\).
If 20% of the \(\displaystyle{89}^{{{S}{r}}}\) remains in the body after 90 days, write a function of the form \(\displaystyle{Q}{\left({t}\right)}={Q}{0}{e}^{{−{k}{t}}}\) to model the amount Q(t) of radioactivity in the body t days after the initial dose.
b. what is the biological half-life of \(89^{Sr}\) under this treatment? Round to the nearest tenth of a day.
