Introducing a comprehensive book and CD-ROM for visualizing and computing special functions.
Here is an invaluable reference and learning guide to more than 150 special functions of applied mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, computer science, and engineering. The Atlas contains over 700 graphics of the functions, which readers can also create by using the annotated Mathematica files provided. It offers complete, consistent instructions and test values for computing the functions accurately and efficiently with the full Fortran-90 source programs on the CD-ROM, which is both Windows and Macintosh compatible.
With extensive references and indexing, this integrated package is superbly designed and easy to use--ideal for anyone who works with special functions. Contents include:
Elementary Transcendental Functions
Exponential Integrals and Related Functions
Gamma and Beta Functions
Combinatorial Functions
Number Theory Functions
Probability Distributions
Error Function, Fresnel, and Dawson Integrals
Orthogonal Polynomials
Legendre Functions
Spheroidal Wave Functions
Bessel Functions
Struve, Anger, and Weber Functions
Hypergeometric Functions and Coulomb Wave Functions
Elliptic Integrals and Elliptic Functions
Parabolic Cylinder Functions
Miscellaneous Functions for Science and Engineering
Mathematica Notebooks
Fortran-90 Programs.
