### Why do people study Weyl asymptotics and partial-spectral-projections?

The major focus of the research that my advisor has me doing centers around the idea of asymptotic behavior of partial-spectral-projections on compact manifolds. In a few sentences, here is the ...

### Asymptotics of sum involving Stirling numbers

I've encountered the following sum: $$s_n = \sum_{j=1}^n {n \brace j}(\alpha n)_j \beta^j.$$ Here $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are positive constants, $(\alpha n)_j$ is a falling power, and ${n \brace j}$ ...

### Is this number theoretic quantity bounded above?

I am considering a combinatorial argument which involves the following quantity. We use the prime counting function $\pi(n)$ and to save on exponents we set $h=\pi(n/2)$. The quantity as a function ...

### Asymptotic behavior of maximum of bessel function

Let $J_n$ be the Bessel function of the first kind. Let $J_n^{(\max)} = \max_{x>0} J_n(x)$. What is known about the asymptotic behavior of $J_n^{(\max)}$ at large $n$? Specifically, I am looking ...

### What is the asymptotic of the irregular blue curve? Is it $(8x)^{1/2}$ or is it something else?

From Terry Tao's post here there is the statement: "Conversely, if one can somehow establish a bound of the form $$\displaystyle \sum_{n \leq x} \Lambda(n) = x + O( x^{1/2+\epsilon} ) \tag{1}$$ ...

### Are there extensions of Hilb's and Laplace's formulas to Jacobi polynomials with $\alpha,\beta\le-1$?

In Szegő's Orthogonal Polynomials book, he gives two interesting asymptotic formulas for Jacobi polynomials with $\alpha,\beta>-1$. The first (Theorem 8.21.12, page 197 is a generalization of Hilb'...

### On the equation that involves the Dedekind psi function $\psi(x)=n$ with unique solution $x$, for a fixed integer $n\geq 1$

The Dedekind psi function is defined for a positive integer $m>1$ as $$\psi(m)=m\prod_{\substack{p\mid m\\p\text{ prime}}}\left(1+\frac{1}{p}\right)\tag{1}$$ with the definition $\psi(1)=1$. See ...

### How to check if you have the asymptotic solution of some equation? [closed]

Suppose I have an analytic function $f : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}$ and I have the asymptotic expansion of some $x_0$ up to a few terms in terms of $\epsilon$ for some $\epsilon \to 0$ which I believe ...

### Meinardus theorem at use: problems with conditions

I am working on an enumerative problem related to knot theory, and I have found the following generating function $$F(z)=\prod_{n\geq 1} \frac{1}{(1-z^{2n+1})^2}.$$ I am interested on getting ...

### Spitzer's condition, a slowly varying function and its behavior

Let $S$ denote a random walk that satisfies Spitzer's condition $$\frac{1}{n} \sum _{k=1}^n P (S_k > 0 ) \to \rho$$ for some $\rho \in (0,1)$. From the book Regular Variation (Bingham, Goldie, ...

### Deriving asymptotic variance of generalized estimating equation estimator (GEE)

As well known to us, K.Y. Liang and S. Zeger proposed GEE for longitudinal data analysis in their famous paper. At the appendix of the paper, authors show the proof of Theorem 2. I tried to ...

### Asymptotic expansion for sum involving divisor function [closed]

Could someone tell me if there is a more precise asymptotic expansion for this sum? $$\sum_{n\leq x}\frac{d(n)}{n}=\frac{1}{2} \ln^{2}x+2\gamma \ln x+c+O(x^{-\frac{1}{2}}\ln x)$$ $$d(n)=\sum_{a|n}1$$...

### Trying to bound the generalized hypergeometric function ${}_2F_3(x+1,x+1;1,1,1;\alpha)$ as $x\to \infty$?

(See also edit below)... I am trying to get a nice, explicit, bound on the hypergeometric function $${}_2F_3(a_1,a_2;b_1,b_2,b_3;\alpha),$$ in the case of a large parameter. In particular I am ...

### Plane partitions with equal margins

A plane partition of $n$ is an table of integers $A=(a_{ij})$ which add up to $n$ and non-increase in rows and columns. For example, $$A= \begin{matrix} 331 \\ 32 \ \ \\ 11 \ \ \end{matrix}$$ is a ...

### Sum of squares of middle binomial sums or 'Truncated mean' of binomial coefficients under binomial distribution

$\mu=1+\epsilon$ where $\epsilon>0$ holds. 1.Is there a good bound for $$T=\frac{\sum_{i=-\sqrt{\mu n\ln n}}^{\sqrt{\mu n\ln n}}\binom{n}{\frac n2 +i}^2}{2^n}?$$ This quantity can be ...
Sample $m$ times from unknown probability distribution $p=(p_1,p_2,\cdots,p_n)$, we can construct a probability distribution $q=(q_1.q_2,\cdots,q_n)$. How large $m$ should be to achieve that the ...
