Asymptotic analysis of the Askey-scheme I: from Krawtchouk to Charlier


Treść / Zawartość

Warianty tytułu

Języki publikacji



We analyze the Charlier polynomials C n(χ) and their zeros asymptotically as n → ∞. We obtain asymptotic approximations, using the limit relation between the Krawtchouk and Charlier polynomials, involving some special functions. We give numerical examples showing the accuracy of our formulas.
