Abstract

In this paper we obtain large z asymptotic expansions in the complex plane for the tau function corresponding to special function solutions of the Painlev´e II differential equation. Using the fact that these tau functions can be written as n × n Wronskian determinants involving classical Airy functions, we use Heine’s formula to rewrite them as n-fold integrals, which can be asymptotically approximated using the classical method of steepest descent in the complex plane.
