. Asymptotic expansions are derived for Gegenbauer (ultraspherical) polynomials for large order n that are uniformly valid for unbounded complex values of the argument z , including the real interval 0 ≤ z ≤ 1 in which the zeros are located. The approximations are derived from the differential equation satisfied by these polynomials, and other independent solutions are also considered. For large n this equation is characterized by having a simple pole, and expansions valid at this singularity…

Simplified error bounds for turning point expansions

Recently, the present authors derived new asymptotic expansions for linear differential equations having a simple turning point. These involve Airy functions and slowly varying coefficient functions,

Uniform asymptotic expansions of the Jacobi polynomials and an associated function

Asymptotic expansions have been obtained using two theorems due to Olver for the Jacobi polynomials and an associated function. These expansions are uniformly valid for complex arguments over certain
