# TODO
# o Airy Ai and Bi functions
# o Scorer functions G1 and G2
# o Asymptotic expansions
#   These are possible, e.g. for fixed order, but since the bessel type
#   functions are oscillatory they are not actually tractable at
#   infinity, so this is not particularly useful right now.
# o Series Expansions for functions of the second kind about zero
# o Nicer series expansions.
# o More rewriting.
# o Add solvers to ode.py (or rather add solvers for the hypergeometric equation).
