Description
A comprehensive reference book and software system for mathematicians, physicists, chemists, statisticians, engineers, and computer scientists that provides a consistent approach to visualizing and computing more than 150 special functions of mathematics. Over 700 graphics of functions in the Atlas can be created by readers using annotated Mathematica programs provided on the CD-ROM. Efficient algorithms and programs in FORTRAN produce high-accuracy values for all functions. All programs are provided in printed form and in source form on the CD-ROM that comes packaged with the Atlas. Contents
