     Type:  defect             |       Status:  assigned
 Priority:  normal             |    Milestone:  0.7.0   
Component:  scipy.special      |      Version:          
 Severity:  major              |   Resolution:          
 Keywords:  special.jv bessel  |  
Comment (by pv):

 Something else is rotten in `jv` than the value at (3,4):
 >>> sc.jv(301, 1296.0681)
 >>> sc.jv(301, 1296.0682)
 The asymptotic expansion seems to suffer from problems here, and the
 output from `jv(301,x)` seems to be completely wrong beyond x >= 1300.

 Specfun's JYNB may do a better job here, at least `jn_zeros(301,300)`
 (which calls JYNB down the line) computes the zeros in this region
