Abstract: We consider asymptotics of orthogonal polynomials with respect to weights w(x)dx = eQ(x)dx on the real line, where Q(x) = Σ2mk=0qkxk, q2m > 0, denotes a polynomial of even order with positive leading coefficient. The orthogonal polynomial problem is formulated as a RiemannHilbert problem following [22, 23]. We employ the steepestdescenttype method introduced in [18] and further developed in [17, 19] in order to obtain uniform PlancherelRotachtype asymptotics in the entire complex plane, as well as asymptotic formulae for the zeros, the leading coefficients, and the recurrence coefficients of the orthogonal polynomials. © 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
