Abstract: In this paper two simultaneous Sturm-Liouville systems are considered, the first defined for the interval $0 \leqslant {x_1} \leqslant 1$, the second for the interval $0 \leqslant {x_{2 }} \leqslant 1$, and each containing the parameters $\lambda$ and $\mu$. Denoting the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the simultaneous systems by $({\lambda _{j,k}},{\mu _{j,k}})$ and ${\psi _{j,k}}({x_{1,}}{x_2})$, respectively, $j, k = 0, 1, \ldots$, asymptotic methods are employed to derive asymptotic formulae for these expressions, as $j + k \to \infty$ when $(j, k)$ is restricted to lie in a certain sector of the $(x, y)$ -plane. These results constitute a further stage in the development of the theory related to the behaviour of the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of multiparameter Sturm-Liouville systems and answer an open question concerning the uniform boundedness of the ${\psi _{j,k}} ({x_1}, {x_2})$.
