Recently I'm working with precision calculations of spherical functions. Example, let,
n = 150
x = SetPrecision[120.3, 100]
BesselY[n + 1/2, x] // Precision
BesselJ[n+ 1/2, x] // Precision
Yields 67.2708 and 96.9297 respectively. The two questions are:
1) Why does BesselY results in a worse than BesselJ?
2) How to redefine, BesselY to automatically output a result with a desired pecision?
Note: Simply using N[expr,90], does not yield a result of expr with 90 precision but maintains the same 67.2708.
