Abstract. We have studied the asymptotics of two special two-matrix hypergeometric functions. The validity of the asymptotic expressions for these functions is seen in several selected numerical comparisons between the exact and asymptotic results. These hypergeometric functions find applications in configuration statistics of macromolecules as well as multivariate statistics.
Key words and phrases: Asymptotics, hypergeometric functions of matrix argument, Wishart distribution, macromolecule size and shape distribution functions.
