Modern developments in theoretical and applied science depend on knowledge of the properties of mathematical functions, from elementary trigonometric functions to the multitude of special functions. These functions appear whenever natural phenomena are studied, engineering problems are formulated, and numerical simulations are performed. They also crop up in statistics, financial models, and economic analysis. Using them effectively requires practitioners to have ready access to a reliable collection of their properties. This handbook results from a 10-year project conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology with an international group of expert authors and validators. Printed in full colour, it is destined to replace its predecessor, the classic but long-outdated Handbook of Mathematical Functions, edited by Abramowitz and Stegun. Includes a DVD with a searchable PDF of each chapter.

Recensione:

'The NIST Handbook is indeed a monumental achievement, and the many, many individuals who participated in its creation and dissemination are to be congratulated and thanked.' SIAM News

'The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Cambridge University Press are to be congratulated for publishing a treasury. It is eminently readable with clear, sharp, high-contrast text, mathematical notation and colored graphs and figures. ... People who work with functions will delight in this handbook.' Optics and Photonics News

'... distinguished collection of chapter authors ... To find and effectively utilize such a collection of experts seems deserving of an Olympic medal!' Robert E. O'Malley, Jr, SIAM Review

'This book is essentially an expanded and updated version of [Abramowitz and Stegun's Handbook of Mathematical Functions], but it also comes with a CD, and with weblinks, which enable one readily to access far more material, including some of the original references. As such, it is a welcome addition to one's reference collection. It contains far more material than [Abramowitz and Stegun], especially welcome being an up-to-date chapter on numerical methods and approximations.' The Observatory

'The NIST Handbook provides comprehensive information on hundreds of mathematical functions ... Their qualitative features are illustrated by numerous color figures in two or three dimensions. This is a timely and authoritative modern replacement of the classic [A and S] ...The associated DLMF may well serve as a model for the effective presentation of highly mathematical reference material on the Web. The exposition is eminently readable and delightful, and everyone who works with or applies special mathematical functions will profit definitely from this impressive handbook.' Journal of Geometry and Symmetry in Physics

'... a concise and well-structured format ... there is no doubting the quality of this book ... its content will be useful to anyone working with special functions.' Contemporary Physics

Descrizione del libro:

This new standard reference on mathematical functions replaces the classic but long-outdated handbook from Abramowitz and Stegun. Meticulously validated by an international team of experts, and in full colour, it comes from a 10-year project run by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Includes searchable PDF version on DVD.
