Abstract: A two-dimensional integral containing $ \exp ( - u - t){I_0}(2\sqrt {ut} )$ is considered. $ {I_0}(z)$ is the modified Bessel function and the integral is taken over the rectangle $ 0 \leqslant u \leqslant x$, $ 0 \leqslant t \leqslant y$. The integral is difficult to compute when x and y are large, especially when x and y are almost equal. Computer programs based on existing series expansions are inefficient in this case. A representation in terms of the error function (normal distribution function) is discussed, from which more efficient algorithms can be constructed.
