We consider the asymptotic behavior of the incomplete gamma functions \$gamma (-a,-z)\$ and \$Gamma (-a,-z)\$ as \$atoinfty\$. Uniform expansions are needed to describe the transition area \$z sim a\$, in which case error functions are used as main approximants. We use integral representations of the incomplete gamma functions and derive a uniform expansion by applying techniques used for the existing uniform expansions for \$gamma (a,z)\$ and \$Gamma (a,z)\$. The result is compared with Olver's uniform… Expand

A uniform asymptotic expansion for the incomplete gamma function
We describe a new uniform asymptotic expansion for the incomplete gamma function Γ(a,z) valid for large values of z. This expansion contains a complementary error function of an argument measuringExpand

Four complementary asymptotic expansions are derived which approximate the incomplete gamma functions @C(a,z) and @c(a-z) for large values of their variables a and z with simpler structure than other expansions previously given in the literature. Expand

The paper discusses asymptotic methods for integrals, in particular uniform approximations. We discuss several examples, where we apply the results to Tricomi's \$Psi-\$function, in particular weExpand
