    Gamma Function

    substack's gamma library provides the regular gamma function:

        "gamma":"",

    The gamma function takes a single real parameter.

    var gamma = require('gamma');
    exports.gamma = gamma;

    Both matlab and Excel use the function name gammaln to refer to the natural log of the gamma function. Mathematica uses the name LogGamma and scipy uses the name loggamma. Both names will be used:

    exports.gammaln = gamma.log;
    exports.loggamma = gamma.log;
    

    Gamma's Friends

    The regular beta function is a straightforward manipulation of gamma:

    var beta = function(a,b) { return (gamma(a)*gamma(b))/gamma(a+b); };
    var betaln = function(a,b) { return gamma.log(a)+gamma.log(b)-gamma.log(a+b); };
    beta.log = betaln;
    exports.beta = beta;
    exports.betaln = betaln;

    The lesser-known Pochhammer symbol is even simpler (uses Mathematica order):

    var pochhammer = function(a,n) { return gamma(a+n) / gamma(a); };
    var pochhammerln = function(a,n) { return gamma.log(a+n) - gamma.log(a); };
    pochhammer.log = pochhammerln;
    exports.pochhammer = pochhammer;
    exports.pochhammerln = pochhammerln;
    

    Bessel Functions

    SheetJS's bessel library provides the Bessel functions:

        "bessel":"",

    The bessel functions accept the parameters (x, n) where n is the order of the solution and x is the point at which to evaluate:

    var bessel = require('bessel');
    exports.besselj = bessel.besselj;
    exports.bessely = bessel.bessely;
    exports.besseli = bessel.besseli;
    exports.besselk = bessel.besselk;

    Fractions

    SheetJS's frac library provides the frac function for rational approximations to numbers:

        "frac":"",

    The frac function accept the parameters (x, D, m) where x is the number you wish to approximate, D is an upper bound on the denominator, and m is a flag indicating that you want mixed rather than improper fractions:

    var frac = require('frac');
    exports.frac = frac;
