We examine the exponentially improved asymptotic expansion of the Lerch zeta function $L(\lambda,a,s)=\sum_{n=1}^\infty \exp (2\pi ni\lambda)/(n+a)^s$ for large complex values of $a$, with $\lambda$ and $s$ regarded as parameters. It is shown that an infinite number of subdominant exponential terms switch on across the Stokes lines $\arg\,a=\pm\pi/2$. In addition, it is found that the transition across the upper and lower imaginary $a$-axes is associated, in general, with unequal scales…

Asymptotic Behavior of Remainders of Special Number Series

We consider a one-parameter family of number series involving the generalized harmonic series and study asymptotic properties of the remainders. Using RNp≡∑n=N∞1/np\documentclass[12pt]{minimal}

High-precision computation of uniform asymptotic expansions for special functions

New methods to obtain uniform asymptotic expansions for the numerical evaluation of special functions to high-precision are investigated, obtaining efficient new convergent and uniform expansions for numerically evaluating the confluent hypergeometric functions and the Lerch transcendent at high- Precision.

The Stokes phenomenon associated with the periodic zeta function $F(a,s)$

The exponentially improved large-$a$ expansion for the Hurwitz zeta function $\zeta(s,a)$ is exploited to examine the expansion of the periodic zeta function $F(a,s)$ in the upper half-plane of the

The Stokes lines for Г(z) are the positive and negative imaginary axes, where all terms in the divergent asymptotic expansion for In Г(z) have the same phase. On crossing these lines from the right
