I recall that someone else reported this same bug. It seems to be specific to Version "188.8.131.52x" I have access to an older Version 3.0 (184.108.40.206 ?) and have found that it does not have this problem with BesselJZeros. I do not know if there is a fix. Adam Smith In article <7rshbi$3gs at smc.vnet.net>, iioannou at u.washington.edu (I.
