    Asymptotic limits are given for the SU(2) Wigner Djmn functions as j→∞ for three domains of m and n. Similar asymptotic limits are given for the SU(3) Wigner functions of an irrep with highest weight (λ,0) as λ→∞. The results are shown to be relevant to the analysis of experiments with quantum interferometers.
