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