Searching for an asymptotic to exp[0.5]

Another " counter-intuitive " (entire) function is this one :

this entire f(z) is bounded outside the strip .
( this can be shown with contour integration or substitution )

So its almost everywhere constant.
The fact that a function has no 0 does not limit exp(g(z)) much.
So exp(g(z)) can be very different from exp(polynomial).
On the other hand : if the truncated Taylor series can be approximated well with a truncated product (1+b_n x) then its likely that g(z) is indeed a constant.
This is also likely because of the simplification that all derivates are positive and it might be possible to find a recursion to solve for b_n ...

So I think truncation and induction will show us the way.

Hey Tommy,
Much to learn. I bought Conway's graduate complex analysis book, which includes the Weierstrass factorization theorem. I will add it to my large and growing collection of graduate math books, to supplement my somewhat weak formal math education (BSEE).

For the truncated product equation, where z_n are the zeros of the Asymptotic half exponential, is this correct?

update I tried Tommy's factor, which works surprisingly well. So I guess this is the Weierstrass factorization of the asymptotic half exponential.

Here are the first 10 zeros of the asymptotic half exponential. I also have an approximation for the zeros of the asymptotic function, in terms of Kneser's half exponential.
