Using kjo as a separation constant, separate Equation (4.21) into two differential equations as follows:
Rearrange terms and obtain:
which is the zero-order Bessel equation, and:
The solution of the Bessel equation (4.24) for outgoing waves is given by the zero-order Hankel function of the first kind:
For k0r ^ 1 (far-field approximation):
