# Mittag-Leffler function

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

An entire function of a complex variable , introduced by G. Mittag-Leffler [1] as a generalization of the exponential function:

Since the Mittag-Leffler function and the more general functions of Mittag-Leffler type

are widely used in integral representations and transforms of analytic functions, their properties, in particular asymptotic properties, have been studied in great detail (see [2], [3]).
