This new standard reference on mathematical functions replaces the classic but long-outdated handbook from Abramowitz and Stegun.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.

'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
Frank W. J. Olver is Professor Emeritus in the Institute for Physical Science and Technology and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland. From 1961 to 1986 he was a Mathematician at the National Bureau of Standards in Washington, D.C. Professor Olver has published 76 papers in refereed and leading mathematics journals, and he is the author of Asymptotics and Special Functions (1974). He has served as editor of SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis, Mathematics of Computation, Methods and Applications of Analysis, and the NBS Journal of Research.
Daniel W. Lozier leads the Mathematical Software Group in the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division of NIST. In his capacity as General Editor of the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions Project, he has performed most of the administrative functions associated with the project as well as contributing technically. He is an active member of the SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions, having served two terms as chair, one as vice-chair, and currently as secretary. He has been an editor of Mathematics of Computation and the NIST Journal of Research.
Ronald F. Boisvert leads the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division of the Information Technology Laboratory at NIST. He received his Ph.D. in computer science from Purdue University in 1979 and has been at NIST since then. He has served as editor-in-chief of the ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software. He is currently co-chair of the Publications Board of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and chair of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 2.5 (Numerical Software).
Charles W. Clark received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Chicago in 1979. He is a member of the U.S. Senior Executive Service and is Chief of the Electron and Optical Physics Division and acting Group Leader of the NIST Synchrotron Ultraviolet Radiation Facility (SURF III). Clark serves as Program Manager for Atomic and Molecular Physics at the U.S. Office of Naval Research and is a Fellow of the Joint Quantum Institute of NIST and the University of Maryland at College Park and a Visiting Professor at the National University of Singapore.
