The resurgence properties of the incomplete gamma function. II. (English) Zbl 1326.33004
Summary: In this paper, we derive a new representation for the incomplete gamma function, exploiting the reformulation of the method of steepest descents by C. J. Howls [Proc. R. Soc. Lond., Ser. A 439, No. 1906, 373–396 (1992; Zbl 0773.30040)]. Using this representation, we obtain numerically computable bounds for the remainder term of the asymptotic expansion of the incomplete gamma function \(\Gamma(-a,\lambda a)\) with large \(a\) and fixed positive \(\lambda\), and an asymptotic expansion for its late coefficients. We also give a rigorous proof of Dingle’s formal result regarding the exponentially improved version of the asymptotic series of \(\Gamma(-a,\lambda a)\).
