Abstract. A class of functions involving the divided differences of the psi function and the polygamma functions and originating from Kershaw’s double inequality are proved to be completely monotonic. As applications of these results, the monotonicity and convexity of a function involving ratio of two gamma functions and originating from establishment of the best upper and lower bounds in Kershaw’s double inequality are derived, two sharp double inequalities involving ratios of double factorials are recovered, the probability integral or error function is estimated, a double inequality for ratio of the volumes of the unit balls in R n−1 and R n respectively is deduced, and a symmetrical upper and lower bounds for the gamma function in terms of the psi function is generalized. 1.

Uniform bounds for the complementary incomplete gamma function, Preprint at http://locutus.cs.dal.ca:8088/archive/00000335
"... Abstract. We prove upper and lower bounds for the complementary incomplete gamma function Γ(a, z) with complex parameters a and z. Our bounds are refined within the circular hyperboloid of one sheet {(a, z) : z > ca − 1} with a real and z complex. Our results show that within the hyperboloid, ..."

Abstract. We prove upper and lower bounds for the complementary incomplete gamma function Γ(a, z) with complex parameters a and z. Our bounds are refined within the circular hyperboloid of one sheet {(a, z) : z > ca − 1} with a real and z complex. Our results show that within the hyperboloid, Γ(a, z)  is of order z  a−1 e − Re(z) , and extends an upper estimate of Natalini and Palumbo to complex values of z.

We derive saddlepoint approximations for the distribution and density functions of the halflife estimated by OLS from autoregressive timeseries models. Our results are used to prove that none of the integerorder moments of these halflife estimators exist. This provides an explanation for the very large estimates of persistency, and the extremely wide confidence intervals, that have been reported by various authors – for example in the empirical economics literature relating to purchasing power parity.

"... Monotonicity criteria are established for the generalized Marcum Qfunction, QM(α, β), and the standard Nuttall Qfunction, QM,N(α, β). Specifically, we present that QM(α, β) is monotonically increasing with regard to its order M, for all ranges of the parameters α, β, whereas QM,N(α, β) possesses a ..."

Monotonicity criteria are established for the generalized Marcum Qfunction, QM(α, β), and the standard Nuttall Qfunction, QM,N(α, β). Specifically, we present that QM(α, β) is monotonically increasing with regard to its order M, for all ranges of the parameters α, β, whereas QM,N(α, β) possesses analogous monotonicity behavior with respect to M + N, under the assumption of a ≥ 1. For the normalized Nuttall Qfunction, QM,N(α, β), we also state the same monotonicity criterion without the necessity of restricting the range of the parameter α. By exploiting these results, we propose closedform upper and lower bounds for the standard and normalized Nuttall Qfunctions. Furthermore, specific tight upper and lower bounds for QM(α, β), that have already been proposed in the literature for the case of integer M, are appropriately utilized in order to extend its validity over real values of M. The offered theoretical results can be efficiently applied in the study of digital communications over fading channels, the capacity analysis of multipleinput multipleoutput (MIMO) channels and the decoding of turbo or lowdensity paritycheck (LDPC) codes.
