Asymptotic formulae that estimate the locations of real zeros of the lower incomplete gamma function are obtained using methods based in part on the original derivations by Tricomi. It is shown that these original calculations are correct, aside from some minor typographical errors, whereas later papers have overstated the accuracy of the approximations. For one of the zeros, a minor alteration to Tricomi’s working leads to a formula that is more accurate than those that have appeared in the… Expand
Asymptotic expansions for the incomplete gamma function in the transition regions
It is constructed, for the first time, asymptotic expansions for the normalised incomplete gamma function Q(a,z) =Gamma( a,z)/\Gamma (a) that are valid in the transition regions, and have simple polynomial coefficients. Expand
Algorithm 926: Incomplete Gamma Functions with Negative Arguments
Series expansions and analytic continuation are employed to compute the lower incomplete gamma function for certain critical values of <i>n</i>, and these results are used to initiate stable recurrence. Expand
Defining Incomplete Gamma Type Function with Negative Arguments and Polygamma functions $\psi^{(n)}(-m)$
In this paper the incomplete gamma function $\gamma(\alpha,x)$ and its derivative is considered for negative values of $\alpha $ and the incomplete gamma type function $\gamma_*(\alpha,x_-)$ isExpand
Sequential fractional differential equations with three-point boundary conditions
The expression for Green's function of the associated problem involving the classical gamma function and the generalized incomplete gamma function is obtained and some existence results are obtained by means of Banach's contraction mapping principle and Krasnoselskii's fixed point theorem. Expand
Achievable Rate of Spectrum Sharing Cognitive Radio Systems Over Fading Channels at Low-Power Regime
Interestingly, it is shown that the low-power regime analysis provides a specific insight into the maximum achievable rate behavior of CR that has not been reported by previous studies. Expand
A Novel Downlink IM-NOMA Scheme
A novel IM-based NOMA downlink scheme, termed as IM-NOMA, is proposed, where the base station selects a channel or more to serve each user based on the IM concept and the corresponding power level is allocated based on this concept. Expand


On the Zeros of the Incomplete Gamma Function
Some asymptotic formulae given elsewhere for the zeros of the incomplete gam- ma function -y(a, x) are corrected. A plot of a few of the zero trajectories of the function y(xw, x) is given, where xExpand
NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions
This handbook results from a 10-year project conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology with an international group of expert authors and validators and is destined to replace its predecessor, the classic but long-outdated Handbook of Mathematical Functions, edited by Abramowitz and Stegun.

Asymptotic analysis
This paper presents an analysis of stochastic gradient-based adaptive algorithms with general cost functions. The analysis holds under mild assumptions on the inputs and the cost function. The methodExpand
