The incomplete Bessel function, closely related to incomplete Lipschitz-Hankel integrals, is a well known known special function commonly encountered in many problems of physics, in particular in wave propagation and diffraction [1]-[5]. We present here novel exact and asymptotic series with error functions, for arbitrary complex arguments and integer order, derived from our recent publication [5].
