Description
The tests in stacked disk fail for single precision because J1(qr) is not accurate for large qr. In this test, radius=3000.
Use the following to see the error as a function of q for large radius:
explore/precision.py cylinder
We are using cephes for our implementation of J1. The implementation in fnlib did not perform any better. Note that precision.py shows single precision J1 in numpy/scipy to be more accurate, but that is probably because it is using double precision internally.
The following paper provides an alternative algorithm:
