T1 - A continued fraction expansion for a generalization of Dawson's integral

AU - Dijkstra,D.

PY - 1977

Y1 - 1977

N2 - A continued fraction expansion for a generalization of Dawson's integral is presented. An exact formula for the truncation error in terms of the confluent hypergeometric function is derived. The expansion is shown to have good convergence properties for both small and large values of the argument.
