Inside the turning points, that is, when ρ < ρ tp ( η , ) , there can be a loss of precision by a factor of approximately | G | 2 . … WKBJ approximations (§2.7(iii)) for ρ > ρ tp ( η , ) are presented in Hull and Breit (1959) and Seaton and Peach (1962: in Eq. … Hull and Breit (1959) and Barnett (1981b) give WKBJ approximations for F 0 and G 0 in the region inside the turning point: ρ < ρ tp ( η , ) .

9: 9.16 Physical Applications
The frequent appearances of the Airy functions in both classical and quantum physics is associated with wave equations with turning points, for which asymptotic (WKBJ) solutions are exponential on one side and oscillatory on the other. The Airy functions constitute uniform approximations whose region of validity includes the turning point and its neighborhood. … 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. …
