Hi all,
i'm working with the confluent Heun function (Maple 2019).
Since for the case of an integer coefficient delta or gamma there are two integer Frobenius roots at the regular singularities 0 or 1, there is a logarithmic term in the Frobenius solution at these singularities. So, my question is the following:
When moving around this singularity in the complex plane, the value of the logarithmic term might depend on the choice of the complex logarithm's branch cuts. So, does anybody know just about how HeunC is implemented? Is there sth like a power series solution, which value would in my oppinion depend on this choice of a branch cut?
Or is there another implementation that preserves us from this ambiguity in the case of logarithmic singularities (i.e. integer coefficients in the confluent Heun equation)?

Many thanks,
