# StruveKelvinSter

Evaluate the Struve–Kelvin ster function

Contributed by: Jan Mangaldan
 ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"][z] gives the Struve–Kelvin function ster(z). ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"][n,z] gives the Struve–Kelvin function stern(z).

## Details

Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
For positive real values of parameters, stern(z)= Re(Hn(ze3πi/4)), where H is the StruveH function. For other values, ster is defined by analytic continuation.
ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"][n,z] has a branch cut discontinuity in the complex z plane running from - to 0.
ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"][z] is equivalent to ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"][0,z].
For certain special arguments, ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"] automatically evaluates to exact values.
ResourceFunction["StruveKelvinSter"] can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
