Weber and Beltrami integrals of squared spherical Bessel functions: finite series evaluation and high-index asymptotics. (English) Zbl 1301.33027

The paper is devoted to the Weber integrals \[ E_\mu(n,p;a):= \int_0^{+\infty} k^{2+\mu} e^{-ak^2} j_n^2(pk) dk \] and the Beltrami integrals \[ H_\mu(n,p;b):= \int_0^{+\infty} k^{2+\mu} e^{-bk} j_n^2(pk) dk, \] where \(j_n\) denotes the spherical Bessel function. Finite series expansions of \(E_\mu(n,p;a)\) and \(H_\mu(n,p;b)\) are obtained and their high-index asymptotics are studied.
