Asymptotic properties of zeros of hypergeometric polynomials. (English) Zbl 0983.33008
The zeros of the hypergeometric polynomials \(F(-n, kn+1; kn+2; z)\) are considerd for any \(k>0\). It is shown that every point of a certain lemniscate is a cluster point of zeros as \(n\to\infty\). In an earlier paper by K. Driver and P. Duren [Numer. Algorithms 21, No. 1-4, 147-156 (1999; Zbl 0935.33004)] a similar study for positive integer values of \(k\) has been given.
