Abstract

Some asymptotic formulae given elsewhere for the zeros of the incomplete gamma function γ(a, x) are corrected. A plot of a few of the zero trajectories of the function γ(xw, x) is given, where x is a real parameter. Based on theoretical work by Mahler, it is seen that the zero trajectories of γ(xw, x) lie in a finite region of the complex w-plane.
