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].

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 Publikoa
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.

An analytic representation of the second symmetric standard 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; Universidad Pública de Navarra / Nafarroako Unibertsitate Publikoa
We derive new convergent expansions of the symmetric standard elliptic integral RD(x,y,z), for x,y,z∈C∖(−∞,0], in terms of elementary functions. The expansions hold uniformly for large and small values of one of the three variables x, y or z (with the other two fixed). We proceed by considering a more general parametric integral from which RD(x,y,z) is a particular case. It turns out that this parametric integral is an integral representation of the Appell function F1(a;b,c;a+1;x,y). Therefore, as a byproduct, we deduce convergent expansions of F1(a;b,c;a+1;x,y). We also compute error bounds at any order of the approximation. Some numerical examples show the accuracy of the expansions and their uniform features.

Uniform convergent expansions of the error function in terms of elementary functions
(Springer, 2023) Ferreira González, Chelo; López García, José Luis; 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
We derive a new analytic representation of the error function erfz in the form of a convergent series whose terms are exponential and rational functions. The expansion holds uniformly in z in the double sector | arg (±z) | <π/4. The expansion is accompanied by realistic error bounds.
