In this work, we extend the analytic treatment of Bessel functions of large order and/or argument. We examine uniform asymptotic Bessel function expansions and show their accuracy and range of validity. Such situations arise in a variety of applications, particularly the Fourier transform (FT) of the gravitational wave (GW) signal from a pulsar, global parameter space correlations of a coherent matched filtering search for continuous GWs from isolated neutron stars and tomographic reconstruction of GW LISA sources. The uniform expansion we consider here is found to be valid in the entire range of the argument.
