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.

The theory of the incomplete gamma functions, as part of the theory of conuent hypergeometric functions, has received its rst systematic exposition by Tricomi in the early 1950s. His own contributions, as well as further advances made thereafter, are surveyed here with particular emphasis on asymptotic expansions, zeros, inequalities, computational methods, and applications.
Inequalities Involving Gamma and Psi Functions
"... We prove that certain functions involving the gamma and qgamma function are monotone. We also prove that (x m /(x)) (m+1) is completely monotonic. We conjecture that (x m / (m\Gamma1 (x)) (m) is completely monotonic for m 2, we prove it, with help from Maple, for 2 m 16. We give a ve ..."

We prove that certain functions involving the gamma and qgamma function are monotone. We also prove that (x m /(x)) (m+1) is completely monotonic. We conjecture that (x m / (m\Gamma1 (x)) (m) is completely monotonic for m 2, we prove it, with help from Maple, for 2 m 16. We give a very useful Maple proceedure to verify this for higher values of m. A stronger result is also formulated where we conjecture that the power series coefficients of a certain function are all positive.

Key words and phrases. gamma function, digamma function, inequalities, complete monotonicity. 1. Introduction. Inequalities of functions involving gamma functions have been of interest since the 1950's when inequalities by Gautchi, Erber and Kershaw were established. For references and generalizations we refer the interested reader to [5], [13], [14], [15], [16], and to Alzer's p...
Bounds for the ratio of two gamma functions—From Wendel’s and related inequalities to logarithmically completely monotonic functions, submitted
"... Abstract. In the survey paper, along one of main lines of bounding the ratio of two gamma functions, we look back and analyse some known results, including Wendel’s, Gurland’s, Kazarinoff’s, Gautschi’s, Watson’s, Chu’s, LazarevićLupa¸s’s, Kershaw’s and ElezovićGiordanoPečarić’s inequalities, clai ..."

On the other hand, we introduce some related advances on the topic of bounding the ratio of two gamma functions in recent years. Contents
