Abstract

We relate asymptotics of Jacobi parameters to asymptotics of the spectral weights near the edges. Typical of our results is that for an ≡ 1, bn = - C n- β (0 < β < frac(2, 3)), one has d μ (x) = w (x) d x on (- 2, 2), and near x = 2, w (x) = e- 2 Q (x) where Q (x) = β- 1 Cfrac(1, β) frac(Γ (frac(3, 2)) Γ (frac(1, β) - frac(1, 2)) (2 - x)frac(1, 2) - frac(1, β), Γ (frac(1, β) + 1)) (1 + O ((2 - x))) .
