So replacing the order of the numbers should give the result he got in
Mathlab, right? This isn't the case.
bessely(6,4.5) gives you 0.09839.
Am I missing something?

gnumeric and XL (and probably OO) do not do fractional orders. So
bessely(6,4.5) really calculates bessely(6,4). This is documented in the
function description.
