## Compute Bessel functions of the following types:

## @table @code
## @item besselj
## Bessel functions of the first kind.
##
## @item bessely
## Bessel functions of the second kind.
##
## @item besseli
## Modified Bessel functions of the first kind.
##
## @item besselk
## Modified Bessel functions of the second kind.
## @end table
##
## The second argument, @var{x}, must be a real matrix, vector, or scalar.
##
## The first argument, @var{alpha}, must be greater than or equal to zero.
## If @var{alpha} is a range, it must have an increment equal to one.
##
## If @var{alpha} is a scalar, the result is the same size as @var{x}.
##
## If @var{alpha} is a range, @var{x} must be a vector or scalar, and the
## result is a matrix with @code{length(@var{x})} rows and
## @code{length(@var{alpha})} columns.
