Publication Open Access The Pearcey integral in the highly oscillatory region(Elsevier, 2016) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Matematika eta Informatika Ingeniaritza; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more We consider the Pearcey integral P(x, y) for large values of |y| and bounded values of |x|. The integrand of the Pearcey integral oscillates wildly in this region and the asymptotic saddle point analysis is complicated. Then we consider here the modified saddle point method introduced in [Lopez, Pérez and Pagola, 2009] [4]. With this method, the analysis is simpler and it is possible to derive a complete asymptotic expansion of P(x, y) for large |y|. The asymptotic analysis requires the study of three different regions for separately. In the three regions, the expansion is given in terms of inverse powers of y2/3 and the coefficients are elementary functions of x. The accuracy of the approximation is illustrated with some numerical experiments.Show more Publication Open Access Series representations of the Volterra function and the Fransén–Robinson constant(Elsevier, 2021) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Palacios Herrero, Pablo; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more The Volterra function μ(t,β,α) was introduced by Vito Volterra in 1916 as the solution to certain integral equations with a logarithmic kernel. Despite the large number of applications of the Volterra function, the only known analytic representations of this function are given in terms of integrals. In this paper we derive several convergent expansion of μ(t,β,α) in terms of incomplete gamma functions. These expansions may be used to implement numerical evaluation techniques for this function. As a particular application, we derive a numerical series representation of the Fransén–Robinson constant F := µ(1, 1, 0) = R ∞ 0 1 Γ(x) dx. Some numerical examples illustrate the accuracy of the approximationsShow more Publication Open Access Convergent expansions of the Bessel functions in terms of elementary functions(Springer US, 2018) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Matematika eta Informatika Ingeniaritza; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more We consider the Bessel functions Jν (z) and Yν (z) for ν > −1/2 and z ≥ 0. We derive a convergent expansion of Jν (z) in terms of the derivatives of (sin z)/z, and a convergent expansion of Yν (z) in terms of derivatives of (1−cos z)/z, derivatives of (1 − e−z)/z and (2ν, z). Both expansions hold uniformly in z in any fixed horizontal strip and are accompanied by error bounds. The accuracy of the approximations is illustrated with some numerical experiments.Show more Publication Open Access The uniform asymptotic method "saddle point near an end point" revisited(Elsevier, 2024) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Palacios Herrero, Pablo; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertistate PublikoaShow more We continue the program initiated in [López & all, 2009–2011] to simplify asymptotic methods for integrals: in this paper we revise the uniform method ‘‘saddle point near an end point’’. We obtain a more systematic version of this uniform asymptotic method where the computation of the coefficients of the asymptotic expansion is remarkably simpler than in the classical method. On the other hand, as in the standard method, the asymptotic sequence is given in terms of parabolic cylinder functions. New asymptotic expansions of the confluent hypergeometric functions 𝑀(𝑐, 𝑥∕𝛼 + 𝑐 + 1, 𝑥) and 𝑈(𝑐, 𝛼𝑥 + 𝑐 + 1, 𝑥) for large 𝑥, 𝑐 fixed, uniformly valid for 𝛼 ∈ (0, ∞), are given as an illustration.Show more Publication Open Access New series expansions of the 3F2 function(2015) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Pérez Sinusía, Ester; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Matematika eta Informatika IngeniaritzaShow more We can use the power series definition of 3F2(a1, a2, a3; b1, b2; z) to compute this function for z in the unit disk only. In this paper we obtain new expansions of this function that are convergent in larger domains. Some of these expansions involve the polynomial 3F2(a1,−n, a3; b1, b2; z) evaluated at certain points z. Other expansions involve the Gauss hypergeometric function 2F1. The domain of convergence is sometimes a disk, other times a half-plane, other times the region |z|2 < 4|1 − z|. The accuracy of the approximation given by these expansions is illustrated with numerical experiments.Show more Publication Open Access Asymptotic expansions for Moench's integral transform of hydrology(MDPI, 2023) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Pérez Sinusía, Ester; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate Publikoa, PRO-UPNA (6158) 2022Show more Theis' theory (1935), later improved by Hantush & Jacob (1955) and Moench (1971), is a technique designed to study the water level in aquifers. The key formula in this theory is a certain integral transform H[g](r,t) of the pumping function g that depends on the time t and the relative position r to the pumping point as well as on other physical parameters. Several analytic approximations of H[g](r,t) have been investigated in the literature that are valid and accurate in certain regions of r, t and the mentioned physical parameters. In this paper, the analysis of possible analytic approximations of H[g](r,t) is completed by investigating asymptotic expansions of H[g](r,t) in a region of the parameters that is of interest in practical situations, but that has not yet been investigated. Explicit and/or recursive algorithms for the computation of the coefficients of the expansions and estimates for the remainders are provided. Some numerical examples based on an actual physical experiment conducted by Layne-Western Company in 1953 illustrate the accuracy of the approximations.Show more Publication Open Access Convergent and asymptotic expansions of the Pearcey integral(Elsevier, 2015) López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Matematika eta Informatika Ingeniaritza; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more We consider the Pearcey integral P(x; y) for large values of |x|, x, y ∈ C. We can find in the literature several convergent or asymptotic expansions in terms of elementary and special functions, with different levels of complexity. Most of them are based in analytic, in particular asymptotic, techniques applied to the integral definition of P(x; y). In this paper we consider a different method: the iterative technique used for differential equations in [Lopez, 2012]. Using this technique in a differential equation satisfied by P(x; y) we obtain a new convergent expansion analytically simple that is valid for any complex x and y and has an asymptotic property when |x|→ ∞ uniformly for y in bounded sets. The accuracy of the approximation is illustrated with some numerical experiments and compared with other expansions given in the literature.Show more Publication Open Access Uniform approximations of the first symmetric elliptic integral in terms of elementary functions(Springer, 2022) Bujanda Cirauqui, Blanca; López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Palacios Herrero, Pablo; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Gobierno de Navarra / Nafarroako GobernuaShow more We consider the standard symmetric elliptic integral RF(x, y, z) for complex x, y, z. We derive convergent expansions of RF(x, y, z) in terms of elementary functions that hold uniformly for one of the three variables x, y or z in closed subsets (possibly unbounded) of C\ (−∞, 0]. The expansions are accompanied by error bounds. The accuracy of the expansions and their uniform features are illustrated by means of some numerical examples.Show more Publication Open Access Convergent expansions of the incomplete gamma functions in terms of elementary functions(World Scientific Publishing, 2017) Bujanda Cirauqui, Blanca; López García, José Luis; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Matematika eta Informatika Ingeniaritza; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Ingeniería Matemática e Informática; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more We consider the incomplete gamma function γ(a,z) for Ra>0 and z∈C. We derive several convergent expansions of z−aγ(a,z) in terms of exponentials and rational functions of z that hold uniformly in z with Rz bounded from below. These expansions, multiplied by ez, are expansions of ezz−aγ(a,z) uniformly convergent in z with Rz bounded from above. The expansions are accompanied by realistic error bounds.Show more Publication Open Access Uniform convergent expansions of integral transforms(American Mathematical Society, 2021) López García, José Luis; Palacios Herrero, Pablo; Pagola Martínez, Pedro Jesús; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute for Advanced Materials and Mathematics - INAMAT2; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate PublikoaShow more Several convergent expansions are available for most of the special functions of the mathematical physics, as well as some asymptotic expansions [NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, 2010]. Usually, both type of expansions are given in terms of elementary functions; the convergent expansions provide a good approximation for small values of a certain variable, whereas the asymptotic expansions provide a good approximation for large values of that variable. Also, quite often, those expansions are not uniform: the convergent expansions fail for large values of the variable and the asymptotic expansions fail for small values. In recent papers [Bujanda & all, 2018-2019] we have designed new expansions of certain special functions, given in terms of elementary functions, that are uniform in certain variables, providing good approximations of those special functions in large regions of the variables, in particular for large and small values of the variables. The technique used in [Bujanda & all, 2018-2019] is based on a suitable integral representation of the special function. In this paper we face the problem of designing a general theory of uniform approximations of special functions based on their integral representations. Then, we consider the following integral transform of a function g(t) with kernel h(t, z), F(z) := 1 0 h(t, z)g(t)dt. We require for the function h(t, z) to be uniformly bounded for z ∈D⊂ C by a function H(t) integrable in t ∈ [0, 1], and for the function g(t) to be analytic in an open region Ω that contains the open interval (0, 1). Then, we derive expansions of F(z) in terms of the moments of the function h, M[h(·, z), n] := 1 0 h(t, z)tndt, that are uniformly convergent for z ∈ D. The convergence of the expansion is of exponential order O(a−n), a > 1, when [0, 1] ∈ Ω and of power order O(n−b), b > 0, when [0, 1] ∈/ Ω. Most of the special functions F(z) having an integral representation may be cast in this form, possibly after an appropriate change of the integration variable. Then, special interest has the case when the moments M[h(·, z), n] are elementary functions of z, because in that case the uniformly convergent expansion derived for F(z) is given in terms of elementary functions. We illustrate the theory with several examples of special functions different from those considered in [Bujanda & all, 2018-2019].Show more
