  • Asymptotic evaluation of an integral arising in quantum harmonic oscillator tunnelling probabilities 

    Paris, Richard B. (Hikari, 2015-04-27)
    We obtain an asymptotic evaluation of the integral ʃ ∞ √2n+1 e−x2 H2 n (x) dx for n → ∞, where Hn(x) is the Hermite polynomial. This integral is used to determine the probability for the quantum harmonic oscillator in the ...
  • The asymptotic expansion of a generalisation of the Euler-Jacobi series 

    Paris, Richard B. (European Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics (EJPAM), 2016)
    We consider the asymptotic expansion of the sum Sp(a; w) = ∞Ʃ n=1 e−anp/nw as a → 0 in | arg a| <1/2π for arbitrary finite p > 0 and w > 0. Our attention is concentrated mainly on the case when p and w are both even ...
  • The first millimeter detection of a non-accreting ultracool dwarf 

    Williams, P. K. G.; Casewell, S. L.; Stark, Craig R.; Littlefair, S. P.; Helling, Ch.; Berger, E. (IOP Publishing, 2015-12-09)
    The well-studied M9 dwarf TVLM 513–46546 is a rapid rotator (P rot ~ 2 hr) hosting a stable, dipolar magnetic field of ~3 kG surface strength. Here we report its detection with ALMA at 95 GHz at a mean flux density of 56 ...
  • On the asymptotics of products related to generalizations of the Wilf and Mortini problems 

    Chen, Chao-Ping; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2015-12-11)
    In this paper, we present the connection between generalized Wilf’sand Mortini’s problems. We also consider the connection betweenanother infinite product formula and limit relation with severalparameters.
