The paper describes establishment of bounding inequalities for the Jacobi function as a consequence of reasonably sharp inequalities for the classical Laguerre functions, given in Section 2 of the paper in the form of four lemmas. By virtue of hypergeometric representations of the classical Jacobi function
of the first kind and the classical Laguerre function
in terms of
, the Eulerian integral is written and then appealing to the corresponding version of Love’s inequality, the first bounding inequality is obtained. Further, the lemmas those given in Section 2 are employed to obtain remaining two bounding inequalities.
