Abstract: Let $ \langle {y_n}:n \geq 1\rangle $ be a convergent sequence of reals, where for each $ n$ the tuple $ \langle {y_n},{y_{n + 1}}, \ldots ,{y_n} + k,1/n\rangle $ satisfies one of $ r$ equations, depending on the residue class of $ n(\bmod r)$, for some given $ k$ and $ r$ . Assume these equations are smooth, they have the same gradient in the first $ k + 1$ variables, and this gradient satisfies a certain nonmodularity condition. We then show that $ {y_n}$ has $ r$ asymptotic expansions, depending on the residue class of $ n(\bmod r)$, in terms of powers of $ 1/n$. This result enables us to discuss the asymptotic behavior of the recurrence coefficients associated with certain orthogonal polynomials. A key ingredient in the proof of the main result is a lemma involving exponential sums.
