Absence of zeros and asymptotic error estimates for Airy and parabolic cylinder functions

By Felix Finster and Joel Smoller


We derive WKB approximations for a class of Airy and parabolic cylinder functions in the complex plane, including quantitative error bounds. We prove that all zeros of the Airy function lie on a ray in the complex plane, and that the parabolic cylinder functions have no zeros. We also analyze the Airy and Airy-WKB limit of the parabolic cylinder functions
