Abstract: In this work we describe a simple method for finding approximate representations for special functions which are entire transcendental functions that can be represented by infinite products. This method replaces the infinite product by a finite polynomial and Gamma functions. This approximate representation is shown in the case of Bessel functions to be very accurate over a large range of parameter values. These approximate expressions can be useful for finding the roots of a transcendental equation and the Wiener-Hopf factorization of functions involving such Bessel functions.The method is shown to be potentially useful for other transcendental andWiener-Hopf problems, which involve other entire functions that have infinite product representations.
