Asymptotics Book Recommendation

  1. Apr 27, 2010 #1
    Can anyone recommend an expository book or article containing some of the derivations of the asymptotic expansions of special functions? Many of the "lookup" type books such as Abramovitz and Stegun contain the results but not the derivation of the results.

    A nice presentation is in "Advanced Mathematical Methods for Scientists and Engineers" by Bender and Orszag.

    Abramowitz and Stegun has little references beside each entry, doesn't it?
