Abstract
Two accurate, simple approximations to the integral of Bessel's function J0 are presented. The second-order approximant is practically indistinguishable from the true integral when plotted together, even for very large values of the argument. Our approximants, are in addition analytic, and can replace with significant advantages both the well- known power series of the integral and its asymptotic formula. We derive approximants to the transmittance of a plane wave through a circular aperture. Our second order approximant to the transmittance is analytic, and can be evaluated, for all values of the argument, just with a hand- calculator. Its accuracy is better than 0.0011.
