Abstract: We consider classes of functions uniquely determined by coefficients of their divergent expansions. Approximating a function in such a class by partial sums of its expansion, we study how the accuracy changes when we move within a given region of the complex plane. Analysis of these changes allows us to propose a theory of divergent expansions, which includes a duality theorem and the Stokes phenomenon as essential parts. In its turn, this enables us to formulate necessary and sufficient conditions for a particular divergent expansion to encounter the Stokes phenomenon. We derive explicit expressions for the exponentially small terms that appear upon crossing Stokes lines and lead to an improvement in the accuracy of the expansion.
