asympt

asymptotic expansion

 Calling Sequence asympt(f, x) asympt(f, x, n)

Parameters

 f - algebraic expression in x x - name n - positive integer (truncation order)

Description

 • The function asympt computes the asymptotic expansion of f with respect to the variable x (as x approaches infinity).
 • The third argument n specifies the truncation order of the series expansion.  If no third argument is given, the value of the global variable Order (default Order = 6) is used.
 • Specifically, asympt is defined in terms of the series function

$\mathrm{subs}\left(x=\frac{1}{x},\mathrm{series}\left(\mathrm{subs}\left(x=\frac{1}{x},f\right),x=0,n\right)\right)$

 However, the expression returned will be in sum-of-products form rather than in the series form.
