Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Because of the numerous applications involved in this field, the theory of special functions is under permanent development, especially regarding the requirements for modern computer algebra methods. The Handbook of Special Functions provides in-depth coverage of special functions, which are used to help solve many of the most difficult problems in physics, engineering, and mathematics. The book presents new results along with well-known formulas used in many of the most important mathematical methods in order to solve a wide variety of problems. It also discusses formulas of connection and conversion for elementary and special functions, such as hypergeometric and Meijer G functions.

Book News Annotation:

A staple of investigations in physics, engineering and mathematics, special functions have a wide variety of applications while undergoing significant development at the same time. Brychkov (Computing Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences) offers practitioners new results and covers known functions for the sake of completeness. He pays special attention to formulas of derivatives of nth-order (with respect to the argument) and of the first derivatives (with respect to the parameter) for most elementary and special functions, covering the derivatives (including the Hurwitz zeta function and Fresnel integrals) limits (including special functions), indefinite integrals (including elementary and special functions), definite integrals (including Bessel, Mcdonald, Struve, Kelvin, Legendre, Chebyshev, Hermite, Laguerre and Jacobi functions and polynomials), finite sums, infinite series, the connection formulas and representations of hypergeometric functions and of the Meijer G function.
