The absolutely convergent exponential sum [formula missing] is studied for m→+∞ and fixed p when the parameter θ is allowed to become large such that θ/m remains finite. This situation corresponds, in general, to the trace in the complex plane of the partial sums of Sp(θ;m) consisting of a multiple spiral structure. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the accuracy of the expansion.
