A complete asymptotic development of the Stirling numbers S(N, K) of the second kind is obtained by the saddle point method previously employed by Moser and Wyman [Trans, Roy. Soc. Canad., 49 (1955), 49-54] and de Bruijn [Asymptotic methods in analysis, North-Holland, Amsterdam, 1958, pp. 102-109] for the asymptotic representation of the related Bell numbers.
