 Searching for an asymptotic to exp[0.5] sheldonison Long Time Fellow Posts: 640 Threads: 22 Joined: Oct 2008 10/08/2015, 01:11 PM (This post was last modified: 10/08/2015, 06:08 PM by sheldonison.)

Its a different base ; exp(- 1/4) =\= 2^(-1). So this is the worst fit , rather then the best ? It seems to disprove the conjectures ?! Or do i need less or more medication ? Regards Tommy1729 It is a different base; I interpolated $f(x) = \exp(\ln(x)^2)$ as per your earlier post. I leave it as a home work problem for you to generate the fake function for $f(x) \approx \exp$$\frac{\(\ln(x)$$^2}{2\ln(2)}\)\;\;\; g(x)\approx \frac{x^2}{2\ln(2)}$, which should be closer to Jay's series, in the sense that I think as x gets arbitrarily large, $g(x) \approx \frac{x^2}{2\ln(2)}$ for J(x). But this is a very rough order of magnitude approximation of J(x). If you like, I can post the results for the fake function for Jay's series exactly, but it would be a numerical Taylor series, not a nice closed form function. Ok, here are the numerical approximations for the ratio of the Gaussian approximation for fake_a_n/a_n, for J(x). I would expect that as n gets arbitrarily large, this would go to a constant, but not get to exactly 1, unlike the case for the fake function for exp(z) or exp^{0.5}(z), where the ratio gets arbitrarily close to 1. The error term is going to be the ratio of the Gaussian approximation over the exact integral, which is complicated, but for this function, we think g'' goes to a constant, instead of getting arbitrarily small. So the error term involves the integral going from -infinity to infinity instead of the exact value of the integral from -pi to pi. Also the exact a_n integral includes all of the derivatives of g(z), not just the g'' approximation with all higher derivatives zero. My "guess" for the ratio as n goes to infinity: 1.00000000002528325425; this is the limiting ratio as n goes to infinity for the fake function for $f(x) = \exp$$\frac{\(\ln(x)$$^2}{2\ln(2)}\)$. Now take the entire function, fake(x)=~f(x); and generate fake2(x) from fake(x), and that is how you get this limiting ratio. More later, only if there is interest.

You mention Laurent and then you drop the negative terms ??If one includes the full Laurent series with negative terms, then there is a closed form for fake(x)-f(x), which might help with proofs. The negative Laurent series terms, $\frac{a_n}{x^n}$ terms cause a singularity at zero, but otherwise quickly become insignificant; elsewhere the full Laurent series converges. One might be able to prove the "guessed ratio" above.

I Will Try to finish my homework today but im only at 2% of my potential. Homework sounds a bit ... Oh well. Anyway exp( (ln(x)^2) / 2 ln(2) ) is indeed a better estimate. Why are you so carefull with the exact integral ? Cant we simply express it with erf or similar special functions ? I havent investigated it yet, but you seem to hold back or so. Not sure about the how and why here. How you computed your limit is a mystery to me. Something to do with iterating the gaussian method ? Reminds me of the Tommy-Sheldon iterations. I Will now take my medication and do my other homework first ( number theory ). Im not a student though. There is no PhD in fake function theory yet. And your not my professor. But thanks for the post.

To avoid it being too small for the gaussian method , I invented the Tommy-Sheldon iterations. However perhaps computing a fake g works better. Although computing a fake g with the gaussian could result in " the same problem with g_2 ". ( the Tommy-Sheldon iterations do not have that problem ) Or maybe combining those. Hmm.

I did this numerically. I think I might be able to generate a closed form equation for this new ratio result, using the equations from post#85.

The reason I got confused is 1) i incorrectly thought 1/n! ~ sqrt(2 pi n) (e/n)^n. See the fake exp. 2) I assumed the gaussian was bigger then S9 because 2 a) the Gaussian is better then S9. 2 b) You Said in post 9 that the method ( S9 ) always gives An underestimate. So apparantly 2 b) is false. This was not mentioned before ! Im sorry. Big misunderstanding. Did I understand my misunderstanding Well ? Since 2 b) is false, does this imply there exist functions equal to their fake , independent of the method for fake ? I guess so. So we could solve S9( f(x) ) = f(x) ? Intresting. I need to read the entire thread again.
