Abstract : Let X be normally distributed with mean zero and variance 1, and let Y = the absolute value of (1+x/sq root of (n)sup(2dn) where d and n are positive numbers. The asymptotic value of the expected value of Y for large n, is considered. The asymptotic behavior of a hypergeometric function, it is shown, can be derived from the expected value of Y. (Author)
