Abstract

We employ the exponentially improved asymptotic expansions of the confluent hypergeometric functions on the Stokes lines discussed by the author [Appl. Math. Sci. 7 (2013) 6601–6609] to give the analogous expansions of the modified Bessel functions Iν(z) and Kν(z) for large z and finite ν on arg z = ±π (and, in the case of Iν(z), also on arg z = 0). Numerical results are presented to illustrate the accuracy of these expansions.
