A Higher Order Asymptotic Expansion of the Krawtchouk Polynomials
The paper extends a classical result on the convergence of the Krawtchouk polynomials to the Hermite polynomials. We provide a uniform asymptotic expansion in terms of Hermite polynomials and obtain explicit expressions for a few first terms of this expansion. The research is motivated by the study of ergodic sums of the Pascal adic transformation. Bibliography: 10 titles.
