We just want b and c to be non-zero. Maybe something like Boole[b!=0 AND c!=0], or define the integrand as a piecewise function taking 0 whenever b or c are 0.

Just not zero?

Yes, b,c non-zero is the only restriction on b,c in this case.

I remember this, there is also the restriction of b ≠ x and c ≠ y

That may be necessary. If the Bessel functions are too difficult it is possible to replace them with cosines.

Do you have one to see?

The first term in the asymptotic expansion of is:

so we can write the expression as looking like:

ignoring all the constants.

Unfortunately Mathematica has a lot of trouble just trying to evaluate this integral for given b,c, so the sum looks hopeless.

What did you use to get that asymptotic form for the Bessel function?

I looked it up in my supervisor's copy of Gradshteyn and Ryzhik. There is a version involving sin as well

Unfortunately, neither version is workable. I cannot even compute the integral over [1,2], putting b = c = 10, say.

Can you post the commands? My typing skills are notoriously bad.

Here is what the integral looks like in Mathematica over [1,2]*[1,2], not including the sum and putting the values b = c = 100 in.

```
Integrate[(Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] - 3*Pi/4]*
Cos[Sqrt[(100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2]])/((((x^2 + y^2)^(3/
4)))*((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(3/4)), {x, 1, 2}, {y, 1,
2}]
```

I've been running that all day and have not got anything though.

Okay, thanks for posting that.

You can get a quick answer for this.

```
NIntegrate[
NIntegrate[(
Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] - (3 \[Pi])/4] Cos[
Sqrt[(100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2]])/((x^2 + y^2)^(
3/4) ((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(3/4)), {x, 1, 5}], {y, 1, 5}]
```

Okay, try this instead:

```
NIntegrate[(Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] - 3*\[Pi]/4]*
Cos[Sqrt[(100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2]])/((((x^2 + y^2)^(3/
4)))*((100 - x)^2 + (100 - y)^2)^(3/4)), {x, 1, 5}, {y, 1,
5}]
```

Thanks, this works very well. The question is how to get this to combine this with the sum. Going to try and see what NSum does.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't notice your post just now. I managed to get your original code (with the nested NIntegrates) to work after closing Mathematica fully.

That is going to be another problem, could get very ugly.

It looks like Mathematica struggles more with values very close to b,c = 0.

```
NIntegrate[
NIntegrate[(Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] - (3 \[Pi])/4] Cos[
Sqrt[(1 - x)^2 + (1 - y)^2]])/((x^2 + y^2)^(3/
4) ((1 - x)^2 + (1 - y)^2)^(3/4)), {x, 1, 1000}], {y, 1,
1000}]
```

produced 1.13796 in 89.72 seconds.

And here is what happens when trying a sum over one variable.

```
NSum[NIntegrate[
NIntegrate[(Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] - (3 \[Pi])/4] Cos[
Sqrt[(b - x)^2 + (10 - y)^2]])/((x^2 + y^2)^(3/
4) ((b - x)^2 + (10 - y)^2)^(3/4)), {x, 1, 1000}], {y, 1,
1000}], {b, 10, 12}]
```

produced 0.655201 in about 50 seconds. And that is with just 1 variable summed over 3 terms.

Currently running a double NSum with a double NIntegrate and that is producing lots and lots of errors, several of which include the words "catastrophic loss of precision".

EDIT:

```
NSum[NSum[
NIntegrate[
NIntegrate[(Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] - (3 \[Pi])/4] Cos[
Sqrt[(b - x)^2 + (c - y)^2]])/((x^2 + y^2)^(3/
4) ((b - x)^2 + (c - y)^2)^(3/4)), {x, 1, 10}], {y, 1,
10}], {b, 1, 10}], {c, 1, 10}]
```

produced 3.05475*10^16 in about 395 seconds.

For values that cause forms like /0 there will be big problems.

My revised post only uses one NIntegrate and gets faster results.

works a lot better and yielded 4.02468 in 16 seconds, surprisingly.

It might be alternating.

It does seem that way, especially when varying rho. And that would make sense (this is how the remainder behaves in the Gauss circle problem).

Alternating series have the Leibniz property and they can be bounded.
