zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.

Asymptotics and special functions. Reprint. (English) Zbl 0982.41018
AKP Classics. Wellesley, MA: A K Peters. xviii, 572 p. (1997).
The first edition of this book has been published by Academic Press (1974, same title). There is a one-page new preface for the A K Peters edition in which new books and developments since the first edition of the book are mentioned. In the new edition a few minor errors have been corrected. For a review of the first edition see Zbl 0303.41035; a review of the Russian translation is given in Zbl 0712.41006. For a review by Jet Wimp, see SIAM Review, Vol. 17, No. 3, 569 – 575, 1975. The book has become a classical reference and standard work on asymptotics, in particular on rigorous asymptotics for the solutions of linear second order differential equations, which area is closely related with the classical functions of mathematical physics.
