The generation of continuous functions by approximating them by solutions of linear constant-coefficient ordinary differential equations is discussed. The coefficients and initial conditions for these "differential approximations" can be found using "quasilinearization." An application to the problem of generating Bessel functions is described.
Analog computation, analytic function generation, Bessel functions, differential approximation.
