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.

Abstract. In the present paper, necessary and sufficient conditions are established for a function involving divided differences of the digamma and trigamma functions to be completely monotonic. Consequently, necessary and sufficient conditions are derived for a function involving the ratio of two gamma functions to be logarithmically completely monotonic, and some double inequalities are deduced for bounding divided differences of polygamma functions. 1.

Abstract. In the article, a notion “logarithmically absolutely monotonic function” is introduced, an inclusion that a logarithmically absolutely monotonic function is also absolutely monotonic is revealed, the logarithmically complete monotonicity and the logarithmically absolute monotonicity of the function α x+β 1+ are proved, where α and β are given real parameters, a new proof x for the inclusion that a logarithmically completely monotonic function is also completely monotonic is given, and an open problem is posed.

Abstract. In this article, a necessary and sufficient condition and a necessary condition are established for a function involving the gamma function to be logarithmically completely monotonic on (0, ∞). As applications of the necessary and sufficient condition, some inequalities for bounding the psi and polygamma functions and the ratio of two gamma functions are derived. This is a continuator of the paper [12]. 1.
