Description
At the moment, Sage uses Maxima to compute the Bessel Y function. This is slow and works only with the default 53 bits of precision. It would be fairly easy to implement this:
- for integer values of the order nu, use the mpfr yn function
- for non-integer values of nu, use the formula $Y_nu(z) = (J_nu(z)*cos(nu*pi) - J_{-nu}(z))/sin(nu*pi)$, where J is the Bessel J function.

See #3426 (and review it!) for the Bessel functions other than Y. The code computes values at arbitrary complex coefficients.

Now that mpmath is included in Sage, why not just use mpmath's Bessel functions? http://mpmath.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/doc/build/functions/bessel.html
They seem to be very well-implemented, work to arbitrary precision, take complex arguments, and so on. Is this a good idea?

Yep, I'll add a related doctest in #4102 to address arbitrary precision numerical evaluation for bessel_Y.

Confirmed that this is doctested there.

It would also be nice to be able to evaluate Bessel functions with complex, or at least purely imaginary, arguments.
