##### 21: 2.11 Remainder Terms; Stokes Phenomenon
Taking $m=10$ in (2.11.2), the first three terms give us the approximation …The error term is, in fact, approximately 700 times the last term obtained in (2.11.4). … These answers are linked to the terms involving the complementary error function in the more powerful expansions typified by the combination of (2.11.10) and (2.11.15). … However, to enjoy the resurgence property (§2.7(ii)) we often seek instead expansions in terms of the $F$-functions introduced in §2.11(iii), leaving the connection of the error-function type behavior as an implicit consequence of this property of the $F$-functions. … Subtraction of this result from the sum of the first 5 terms in (2.11.25) yields 0. …

• ##### 25: 33.22 Particle Scattering and Atomic and Molecular Spectra
The negative-energy functions are widely used in the description of atomic and molecular spectra; see Bethe and Salpeter (1977), Seaton (1983), and Aymar et al. (1996). … For scattering problems, the interior solution is then matched to a linear combination of a pair of Coulomb functions, $F_{\ell}\left(\eta,\rho\right)$ and $G_{\ell}\left(\eta,\rho\right)$, or $f\left(\epsilon,\ell;r\right)$ and $h\left(\epsilon,\ell;r\right)$, to determine the scattering $S$-matrix and also the correct normalization of the interior wave solutions; see Bloch et al. (1951). For bound-state problems only the exponentially decaying solution is required, usually taken to be the Whittaker function $W_{-\eta,\ell+\frac{1}{2}}\left(2\rho\right)$. … The penetrability of repulsive Coulomb potential barriers is normally expressed in terms of the quantity $\rho/({F_{\ell}}^{2}\left(\eta,\rho\right)+{G_{\ell}}^{2}\left(\eta,\rho\right))$ (Mott and Massey (1956, pp. 63–65)). … The Coulomb functions given in this chapter are most commonly evaluated for real values of $\rho$, $r$, $\eta$, $\epsilon$ and nonnegative integer values of $\ell$, but they may be continued analytically to complex arguments and order $\ell$ as indicated in §33.13. …

In this equation (and in (5.17.5) below), the $\operatorname{Ln}$’s have their principal values on the positive real axis and are continued via continuity, as in §4.2(i). When $z\to\infty$ in $|\operatorname{ph}z|\leq\pi-\delta\;(<\pi)$,
