Re: Linear combination of Bessel functions

Here is one way:

getBesselCoeff[n_, expr_] :=
Module[{x},
SeriesCoefficient[(expr /. BesselJ[n, _] :> (1/x))*x, {x, 0, 0}]];

So that

In[1503]:=
expr = r^2+Cos[r] BesselJ[0,rho r]+3 Sin[r] BesselJ[1,rho
r]+Log[r]BesselJ[2,rho r];
getBesselCoeff[#,expr]&/@{0,1,2}

Out[1504]= {Cos[r],3 Sin[r],Log[r]}

Leonid
