    Let Λ ℝ denote the linear space over ℝ spanned by z k k ℤ. Define the (real) inner product Ċ,Ċ L : Λ ℝ × Λ ℝ ℝ, (f,g) ∫ ℝ f(s)g(s) exp(- N V(s)) ds, N ℕ, where V satisfies: (i) V is real analytic on ℝ 0; (ii) lim x (V(x)/ln(x 2 } + 1)) = + and (iii) limx 0(V(x)/ln (x 2 } + 1)) = +. Orthogonalisation of the (ordered) base 1,z -1 ,z,z -2 z 2 },z -k },z k with respect to , {{ L}} yields the even degree and odd degree orthonormal Laurent polynomials φ{m}(z) m=0 : φ 2n (z) = ξ (2n) z -n + + ξ (2n)n z n ξ (2n)n > 0, and φ {2n+1} (z) = ξ (2n+1)-n-1 z -n-1 + + ξ (2n+1)n z n ξ (2n+1)-n-1 > 0. Define the even degree and odd degree monic orthogonal Laurent polynomials: π 2n (z) := (ξ (2n)n-1 } φ 2n (z) and π {2n+1} (z) := (ξ (2n+1)-n-1-1 φ 2n+1 (z). Asymptotics in the double-scaling limit N,n such that N,n = 1 + o(1) of π 2n+1 (z) (in the entire complex plane), ξ (2n+1)-n-1 , and φ 2n+1 (z)(in the entire complex plane) are obtained by formulating the odd degree monic orthogonal Laurent polynomial problem as a matrix Riemann-Hilbert problem on ℝ, and then extracting the large-n behaviour by applying the non-linear steepest-descent method introduced in [1] and further developed in [2],[3]. © 2007 Springer.
