The complementary incomplete gamma function
can be expressed by means of a Stieltjes fraction where and We investigate convergence, truncation error bounds and speed of convergence for these and related continued fractions. Moreover, we suggest a modifying factor which is easy to compute and which accelerates the convergence of considerably.
