Uniform asymptotic expansions for Charlier polynomials. (English) Zbl 0991.41020
The author investigates the asymptotic behavior of the Charlier polynomials $C_n^{(a)}$ as $n \to \infty $. The polynomials $C_n^{(a)}$ are not regarded as functions of $x$ with $a$ as a parameter, but rather with the roles reversed via a second-order linear differential equation in which $a$ is the (real or complex valued) independent variable and $x$ is a parameter.
