3: 12.16 Mathematical Applications
PCFs are used as basic approximating functions in the theory of contour integrals with a coalescing saddle point and an algebraic singularity, and in the theory of differential equations with two coalescing turning points; see §§2.4(vi) and 2.8(vi). … In Brazel et al. (1992) exponential asymptotics are considered in connection with an eigenvalue problem involving PCFs. … PCFs are also used in integral transforms with respect to the parameter, and inversion formulas exist for kernels containing PCFs. …

where j denotes a real critical point (36.4.1) or (36.4.2), and μ denotes a critical point with complex t or s , t , connected with j by a steepest-descent path (that is, a path where Φ = constant ) in complex t or ( s , t ) space. … The Stokes set is itself a cusped curve, connected to the cusp of the bifurcation set: … They generate a pair of cusp-edged sheets connected to the cusped sheets of the swallowtail bifurcation set (§36.4). … This part of the Stokes set connects two complex saddles. … In Figure 36.5.4 the part of the Stokes surface inside the bifurcation set connects two complex saddles. …

    The Airy functions constitute uniform approximations whose region of validity includes the turning point and its neighborhood. … These examples of transitions to turbulence are presented in detail in Drazin and Reid (1981) with the problem of hydrodynamic stability. The investigation of the transition between subsonic and supersonic of a two-dimensional gas flow leads to the Euler–Tricomi equation (Landau and Lifshitz (1987)). … These first appeared in connection with the equation governing the evolution of long shallow water waves of permanent form, generally called solitons, and are predicted by the Korteweg–de Vries (KdV) equation (a third-order nonlinear partial differential equation). … This reference provides several examples of applications to problems in quantum mechanics in which Airy functions give uniform asymptotic approximations, valid in the neighborhood of a turning point. …
