We consider asymptotics of orthogonal polynomials with respect to a weight e ?Q(x) dx on R, where either Q(x) is a polynomial of even order with positive leading coeecient, or Q(x) = NV (x), where V (x) is real analytic on R and grows suuciently rapidly as jxj ! 1. We formulate the orthogonal polynomial problem as a Riemann-Hilbert problem following the work of Fokas, Its and Kitaev. We employ the steepest descent-type method for Riemann-Hilbert problems introduced by Deift and Zhou, andâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
