Some new asymptotic expansions for Bessel functions of large orders

  • F. W. J. Olver (a1)

During the course of recent work (6) on the zeros of the Bessel functions Jn(x) and Yn(x), it became evident that the theory of the asymptotic expansion of Bessel functions whose arguments and orders are of comparable magnitudes was incomplete. The existing expansions for large orders are those of Debye and Meissel, detailed derivations of both of which are given by Watson ((8), pp. 237–48).
