Abstract : The 'converging factor' for an asymptotic series representing a function f(x) is that number by which the (n + 1) term of the series must be multiplied so that the result of adding this product to the sum of the first n terms will be f(x). The determination to high precision of this factor for the asymptotic series representing the probability integral is described. Tables of this factor to 63 decimal places are included for n ranging from 2 to 64. (Author)
