Sequences of Nilsson type appear in abundance in Algebraic Geometry, Enumerative Combinatorics, Mathematical Physics and Quantum Topology. We give an elementary introduction on this subject, including the definition of sequences of Nilsson type and the uniqueness, existence, and effective computation of their asymptotic expansion.

Asymptotics of quantum spin networks at a fixed root of unity
A classical spin network consists of a ribbon graph (i.e., an abstract graph with a cyclic ordering of the vertices around each edge) and an admissible coloring of its edges by natural numbers. The
Knots, BPS States, and Algebraic Curves
We analyze relations between BPS degeneracies related to Labastida-Mariño-Ooguri-Vafa (LMOV) invariants and algebraic curves associated to knots. We introduce a new class of such curves, which we
Analyticity of the Planar Limit of a Matrix Model
Using Chebyshev polynomials combined with some mild combinatorics, we provide an alternative approach to the analytical and formal planar limits of a random matrix model with a 1-cut potential V. For
Asymptotics of classical spin networks
A spin network is a cubic ribbon graph labeled by representations of SU.2/. Spin networks are important in various areas of Mathematics (3‐dimensional Quantum Topology), Physics (Angular Momentum,


Quantum field theory and the Jones polynomial
It is shown that 2+1 dimensional quantum Yang-Mills theory, with an action consisting purely of the Chern-Simons term, is exactly soluble and gives a natural framework for understanding the Jones
Analytic Combinatorics
This text can be used as the basis for an advanced undergraduate or a graduate course on the subject, or for self-study, and is certain to become the definitive reference on the topic.
Computer calculation of Witten's 3-manifold invariant
Witten's 2+1 dimensional Chern-Simons theory is exactly solvable. We compute the partition function, a topological invariant of 3-manifolds, on generalized Seifert spaces. Thus we test the path
The colored Jones function is q-holonomic
A function of several variables is called holonomic if, roughly speaking, it is determined from finitely many of its values via finitely many linear recursion relations with polynomial coefficients.
An explicit stationary phase formula for the local formal Fourier-Laplace transform
We give an explicit formula (i.e., a formal stationary phase formula) for the local Fourier-Laplace transform of a formal germ of meromorphic connection of one complex variable with a possibly
Séries Gevrey de type arithmétique, I. Théorèmes de pureté et de dualité
Gevrey series are ubiquitous in analysis; any series satisfying some (possibly non-linear) analytic differential equation is Gevrey of some rational order. The present work stems from two
An algorithmic proof theory for hypergeometric (ordinary and “q”) multisum/integral identities
SummaryIt is shown that every ‘proper-hypergeometric’ multisum/integral identity, orq-identity, with a fixed number of summations and/or integration signs, possesses a short, computer-constructible
