Earlier investigations on uniform asymptotic expansions of the incomplete gamma functions are reconsidered. The new results include estimations for the remainder and the extension of the results to complex variables.

On the computation of special functions by using asymptotic expansions
The use of asymptotic representations of some special functions is discussed. Instead of using the asymptotic series expansions of the functions we consider auxiliary functions which can be computedExpand

The aim of this paper is to establish new, increasingly accurate formulas for evaluating the ratio of gamma functions and the Wallis ratio.
Asymptotic Estimates of Elementary Probability Distributions
Several new asymptotic estimates (with precise error bounds) are derived for Poisson and binomial distributions as the parameters tend to innity. The analytic methods used are also applicable toExpand

Convergent expansions of the incomplete gamma functions in terms of elementary functions
We consider the incomplete gamma function γ(a,z) for ℜa > 0 and z ∈ ℂ. We derive several convergent expansions of z−aγ(a,z) in terms of exponentials and rational functions of z that hold uniformly inExpand
The asymptotic expansion of a generalised incomplete gamma function
We define a generalised incomplete gamma function Lp(a,z), which coincides with the familiar normalised function Q(a,z) = Γ(a,z)/Γ(a) when the integer parameter p = 1. It is shown that the large-zExpand
A numerical study of a new asymptotic expansion for the incomplete gamma function
In this paper we develop further an asymptotic expansion recently derived by Kowalenko and FVankel [6] for a particular Rummer function that is related to the incomplete gamma function. ThisExpand
Error bounds for the uniform asymptotic expansion of the incomplete gamma function
We ∉ derive simple, explicit error bounds for the uniform asymptotic expansion of the incomplete gamma function Γ(a,z) valid for complex values of a and z as |a| → ∞. Their evaluation depends onExpand

In this paper, we derive a simple error estimate for the Stirling formula and also give numerical coefficients. Stirling's formula is: log r(s) - (s - 2) log s - s + 2 log 27r
