Doubt on phase stationary method

  1. Feb 18, 2016 #1
    Can the phase stationary method be applied to complex functions? And if it does, is it still called phase stationary method? I ask this because there are several methods for asymptotic analysis and I need to be sure if I can use this method for complex function. Is there any difference with the steepest descent method? Thanks.

    yes, the steepest descent method is essentially the stationary method in the complex case ...

    Another question, is there a reference on this to prove there are the same thing? Because I use this in my thesis and I need to be sure

    No wait, sorry I intended was analogue not the same thing, in fact I think the steepest descent is more general ...
