Abstract

A method is suggested allowing for the improvement of accuracy of self-similar factor and root approximants, constructed from asymptotic series. The method is based on performing a power transforms of the given asymptotic series, with the power of this transformation being a control function. The latter is defined by a fixed-point condition, which improves the convergence of the sequence of the resulting approximants. The method makes it possible to extrapolate the behaviour of a function, given as an expansion over a small variable, to the region of the large values of this variable. Several examples illustrate the effectiveness of the method
