### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Hmmm, I could not numerically integrate a function involving complex numbers.

### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Hi gAr;

I think you can in two ways.

1) Sage, Maxima and Wolfram can.

2) Any Newton-Coates formula is just a plug in, so complex numbers are no problem. Remember the answer was in complex form.

### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Hi bobbym,

I still can't do it. Sage demands a real number.

Hi gAr;

Okay, it isn't my preferred way of doing it either. Just interesting to see it work.

Hi bobbym,

Okay.
Did it work for large coefficients?

### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Hi gAr;

Yes, but then it becomes a difficult numerical problem.

Was the method I showed in the first post clear enough? Any CAS should be able to do that.

Hi bobbym,

Yes, the integral is good!
But I'm not very clear how it got converted to that.

### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Oh heck, do not worry about that. That is a big mystery to me. How could an integral with complex values zero in on one single coefficient?

### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Yes, a mystery!

That asymptotic form is also mysterious to me.
Can we directly expand about 0 and fit a polynomial?

### Re: Getting an asymptotic form for a GF.

Hi;

If you expand g(x) around 0 you will have a polynomial, the Taylor polynomial. Trying to truncate that by fitting a smaller polynomial should not work.

In A eq B there is theorem that says the principal part of the Laurents series expansion of g(x) is a good approximation of the coefficients of g(x). That is what I used.

I found it kind of difficult and hard to piece together their algorithms. But it did give me the Hayman method and this method.

It's kind of frustrating to read such books.
We'll be dilemma whether to try to read again or skip it, whether the later parts depend on that etc.

Books like that should have more examples, a lot more. Math books should be all examples. I was recently looking through an article where the guy was apologizing for explaining his discoveries by examples! The other guys should be apologizing!
