Abstract

A class of second-order linear differential equations with a large parameter u is considered. It is shown that Liouville-Green type expansions for solutions can be expressed using factorial series in the parameter, and that such expansions converge for Re (u) > 0, uniformly for the independent variable lying in a certain subdomain of the domain of asymptotic validity. The theory is then applied to obtain convergent expansions for modified Bessel functions of large order.
