The limit of a certain function of three variables is shown to be exponential in one variable and independent of the other two. The function is a generalization of an infinite series arising in the calculation of backscattering of sharp laser pulses in an infinite cloud of isotropic scatterers. Convexity of the function in a particular region enables the evaluation of the asymptotic behavior without extensive algebraic manipulations.
