Prime has built in kelvin functions ber and bei.
I would like to know if it also has ber' and bei' which are derivatives of the Kelvin function.
Thanks.
They are not predefined. If they existed, I should think they would be called Dber and Dbei, similar to the derivatives of the Airy functions DAi and DBi.
But that should not impede you to use them:
Or, in Prime:
Success!

Prime knows even how to express them symbolically:

Opps! Is that new in Prime 4 ?
Here in Prime 3:
EDIT: Not my day!
Had overlooked your first post and had not noticed that you also defined the derivative yourself in the second one.
I guess it is. 15 days left to play... (and be terribly annoyed by the slow UI).
Mathcad 11 symbolically gives:
Not more than what you have there in Prime 3.

Guess you misunderstood my post.
At first glance over your post I had the impression, your version of prime would know about Dber and Dbei out of the box. It was only after pressing "Add reply" that I noticed you defined them manually, too.
In Mathcad 15 the symbolics does not know anything about bei and ber, but also in Prime 3 the symbolics knows about "bei" and "ber" and gives us the appropriate result for the derivatives:
Guess you're right. Misunderstanding.
Anyway, I conclude here that something was changed going from Mathcad to Prime, and this change is an improvement.

Agreed on and I am surprised that the change relates to the symbolics as so far I thought thats an area they didn't tamper with.
Prime does not provide those derivatives of those Bessel functions out of the box, but you can define them yourself:
You may even use the prime symbol ' in the name by first writing the name as text between quotes "...." and then deleting the quotation marks.
