Mathieu Functions on the NAG Library demonstrating NAG’s commitment to accuracy

NAG introduced Mathieu functions to the NAG Library at its recent update (Mark 27). Mathieu functions have a range of applications in the solution of problems involving elliptic structures including propagation within elliptical waveguides, the physics of capacitor microphones and scattering from dielectric elliptical cylinders.

Computing Mathieu functions accurately can be difficult and there are many papers on the subject. Here is a demonstration, taken from a StackOverflow question, showing how Python's SciPy implementation occasionally struggles.

The NAG implementation computes the correct results as shown in the plot below
