…
►Then $z={z}_{0}$ is an

*isolated singularity*of $f(z)$. …Lastly, if ${a}_{n}\ne 0$ for infinitely many negative $n$, then ${z}_{0}$ is an*isolated essential singularity*. … ► … ► … ►In any neighborhood of an isolated essential singularity, however small, an analytic function assumes every value in $\u2102$ with at most one exception. …##### 2: 32.2 Differential Equations

►be a nonlinear second-order differential equation in which $F$ is a rational function of $w$ and $dw/dz$, and is

*locally analytic*in $z$, that is, analytic except for isolated singularities in $\u2102$. In general the singularities of the solutions are*movable*in the sense that their location depends on the constants of integration associated with the initial or boundary conditions. An equation is said to have the*Painlevé property*if all its solutions are free from*movable branch points*; the solutions may have movable poles or movable isolated essential singularities (§1.10(iii)), however. …##### 3: 31.13 Asymptotic Approximations

…
►For asymptotic approximations of the solutions of Heun’s equation (31.2.1) when two singularities are close together, see Lay and Slavyanov (1999).
►For asymptotic approximations of the solutions of confluent forms of Heun’s equation in the neighborhood of irregular singularities, see Komarov et al. (1976), Ronveaux (1995, Parts B,C,D,E), Bogush and Otchik (1997), Slavyanov and Veshev (1997), and Lay et al. (1998).

##### 5: 2.4 Contour Integrals

…
►However, for the purpose of simply deriving the asymptotic expansions the use of steepest descent paths is not essential.
…
►The problems sketched in §§2.3(v) and 2.4(v) involve only two of many possibilities for the coalescence of endpoints, saddle points, and singularities in integrals associated with the special functions.
…For a coalescing saddle point and endpoint see Olver (1997b, Chapter 9) and Wong (1989, Chapter 7); if the endpoint is an algebraic singularity then the uniform approximants are parabolic cylinder functions with fixed parameter, and if the endpoint is not a singularity then the uniform approximants are complementary error functions.

►For two coalescing saddle points and an algebraic singularity see Temme (1986), Jin and Wong (1998).

►The general second-order

*Fuchsian equation*with $N+1$ regular singularities at $z={a}_{j}$, $j=1,2,\mathrm{\dots},N$, and at $\mathrm{\infty}$, is given by ►

$$\frac{{d}^{2}w}{{dz}^{2}}+\left(\sum _{j=1}^{N}\frac{{\gamma}_{j}}{z-{a}_{j}}\right)\frac{dw}{dz}+\left(\sum _{j=1}^{N}\frac{{q}_{j}}{z-{a}_{j}}\right)w=0,$$
${\sum}_{j=1}^{N}{q}_{j}=0$.

${a}_{j}$ are $\{0,1-{\gamma}_{j}\}$ and those at $\mathrm{\infty}$ are $\{\alpha ,\beta \}$, where
