# The asymptotic expansion of the incomplete gamma functions : (preprint)

@inproceedings{Temme1977TheAE, title={The asymptotic expansion of the incomplete gamma functions : (preprint)}, author={Nico M. Temme}, year={1977} }

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.
