“A sequence of re-expansions is developed for the remainder terms in the well-known Poincaré series expansions of the solutions to homogeneous linear differential equations of higher order in the neighborhood of an irregular singularity of rank one. These re-expansions are a series whose terms are a product of Stokes multipliers, coefficients of the original Poincaré series expansions, and certain multiple integrals, the so-called hyperterminants. Each step of the process reduces the estimate of the error term by an exponentially small factor.
The method is based on the Borel-Laplace transform, which makes it applicable to other problems. The method is applied to integrals with saddles. A powerful new method is presented to compute the Stokes multipliers. A numerical example is included.” The example demonstrates the power of the procedures developed within the paper. The basic example given is the equation as follows:
As seen by the computations the results require the implementation of 47 terms of the asymptotic expansion of . The paper offers a significant new insight into this type of problem.
