Analytical computation of Bose-Einstein integral functions

  • Akbari Jahan Department of Physics, North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology Nirjuli – 791109 Arunachal Pradesh, India
Keywords: Bose-Einstein integral function, Gamma function, Riemann zeta function, Lanczos approximation, Gauss-Laguerre Quadrature.


The study of Bose-Einstein integral functions is important in the fact that such functions arise in various numerical calculations of different domains of physics. The significance of gamma function and Riemann zeta function in solving such integrals has been studied and functional equations are evaluated thereby enabling the integrals of all orders to be calculated.
