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

Hi;

Anyways, the asymptotic forms come in handy when you can not get an exact answer. The best part about them is that the larger the problem the more accurate they get!

Yes, you are right.

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

It is obvious that there is no one way to get these.
A different method might be required each time...

Supposing we start with the GF:

We wish to get the an asymptotic form for the coefficients of z^n

The Wilf partial fraction:

That stumped me for a long time. Since I know Wilf uses maple
he should have at least shown the command that will do this.
He did not and till now I never figured it out.

By using z = {-2,-1,0,1,2,3} we can form the six equations we
need to achieve Wilf's partial fraction.

One of the solutions to this set of simultaneous equations is:

So

No simplifying done to preserve clarity and structure.

Now from expanding manually the coefficient of z^20 is -3968.24698980352. Try g(20)...

Hi bobbym,

The values are very close! Good one.

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

Yes, because the denominator only has one real pole, subtracting it off
which is somehow done with his method. This greatly increases the convergence. The coefficients depend on the singularities of the g(x).

You used the Knuth idea to get a smaller recurrence, very good. I am working
on a method that uses residues, it will take a while.

Knuth idea?

Hi;

It is a Knuth idea that gAr and I were looking at for the gf of the coin problem.

I would suggest you get it straight from Knuth.
