Abstract [en]

A thorough analysis of values of the function m bar right arrow sn(K(m)u vertical bar m) for complex parameter m and u is an element of (0,1) is given. First, it is proved that the absolute value of this function never exceeds 1 if m does not belong to the region in C determined by inequalities vertical bar z - 1 vertical bar <1 and vertical bar z vertical bar > 1. The global maximum of the function under investigation is shown to be always located in this region. More precisely, it is proved that if u <= 1/2, then the global maximum is located at m = 1 with the value equal to 1. While if u > 1/2, then the global maximum is located in the interval (1,2) and its value exceeds 1. In addition, more subtle extremal properties are studied numerically. Finally, applications in a Laplace-type integral and spectral analysis of some complex Jacobi matrices are presented.
