Many special functions are solutions of first order linear systems yn′(x)=an(x)yn(x)+dn(x)yn-1(x),yn-1′(x),=bn(x)yn-1(x)+en(x)yn(x). We obtain bounds for the ratios yn(x)/yn-1(x) and the logarithmic derivatives of yn(x) for solutions of monotonic systems satisfying certain initial conditions. For the case dn(x)en(x) > 0, sequences of upper and lower bounds can be obtained by iterating the recurrence relation; for minimal solutions of the recurrence these are convergent sequences. The bounds are…
