    • Abstract


      Guseinov, Mamedov, Kara and Orbay (Pramana – J. Phys. 56, 691 (2001)) propose methods for evaluating the molecular auxiliary functions $A_{n}(p)$ and $B_{n}(pt)$ for the range $17\leq n \leq 60$ and $25 \leq pt\leq 60$. However, their procedure for $A_{n}(p)$ is not new, and that for $B_{n}(pt)$ is less efficient for their target range than another well-known method. Their approach does have merit for smaller non-zero values of $pt$. Two minor errors in table 1 of their paper are also identified.
