We denote by and the Bessel functions of the first and third kinds, respectively. Motivated by the relevance of the function , , in many contexts of applied mathematics and, in particular, in some elasticity problems Simpson and Spector (1984), we establish new inequalities for . The results are based on the recurrence relations for and and the TurĂ¡n-type inequalities for such functions. Similar investigations are developed to establish new inequalities for .
