Abstract Optimal discrete transforms based upon the radial Laplacian eigenfunctions in cyclindrical and spherical coordinates are presented, featuring the following properties: (1) bound state boundary conditions are enforced; (2) in the case of cylindrical or spherical symmetry, the relevant discrete Bessel transform (DBT) is analogous to the discrete Fourier transform in Cartesian coordinates; (3) the underlying quadrature algorithms achieve a Gaussian-like accuracy; (4) orthogonality of the transfo... Title of program: HODBT Catalogue Id: ADEX_v1_0 Nature of problem In many applications it is appropriate to expand the sought function in terms of the bounded radial eigenfuctions of the Laplacian in cylindrical or spherical coordinates. These involve Bessel functions of the first kind, Jnu, with integer or half-integer order nu, and the computation of the integral Bessel (or Hankel) transform that generally has to be discretized.
