Probably no more of a relation than the Saint Wolfram in the 7th century AD. But here's what I know In the days before the electronic computerthe ultimate complement to a special function was the computation, by hand, of extended tables of its values. Around one of the Bernoullis had the idea that perhaps the integral of any elementary function would be an elementary function. But the Gamma function—which is one of the most useful special functions—has very few relations.

Which is of course what we now call the sine function. Where the "elementary numbers" might be the rationals, and the algebraic numbers. See Article History Special function, any of a class of mathematical functions that arise in the solution of various classical problems of physics. Here's another thing one can ask: how connected is a particular special function? Are the holes just deficiencies in DSolve?

But gradually more and more of the functions he talked about started being used by several people. What are the useful "special numbers"? And by the late s, special functions were a common subject of tables that were being made. Astronomers—with their epicycle-type models—definitely seem to have been serious users of trigonometry.

Special Functions book

Often we have to derive completely new formulas. The order of special functions descriptions in a program does not matter. K-type Bessel functions in cosmology calculations.

Special Functions for Scientists and Engineers

From a hundred years ago. Reset: Resets the selected item Timer 1, Timer 2, telemetry values, or all of those Vario: Turns on variometer sounds see Special Functions book setup Play track: Plays a sound file from the SD card, with repeats at the specified interval Play value: Speaks the current value of the selected parameter, with repeats at the specified interval SD Logs: Logs the telemetry values to SD card at the specified interval Volume: Adjusts sound volume using the selected source Backlight: Turns backlight on BgMusic, BgMusic pause : Plays a selected soundtrack from the SD card.

And here for example was a block diagram of a Macsyma program that I made for it. Well, OK, we've put a lot of effort into special functions in Mathematica.

And indeed essentially all the special functions that we use have a rather special feature in their power series: the coefficients are rational.

In old-fashioned printed tables there was a big deal about "single entry" tables—functions with one argument. Full professor at the University of Pisa since November They don't really bear the marks of the human creators.

The Egyptian Rhind papyrus from BC already has problems about pyramids that need trigonometry. A program that does not have init or deinitor either of these functions, is also considered normal.

And by the s, Euler was starting his major industrial drive into the world of calculus. Sometimes by people one's never heard of. There are holes. And indeed in most of pure mathematics, the push towards abstract generality made special functions look rather irrelevant and arbitrary.

The three-body problem. There are a few functions that we use that aren't hypergeometric. Which means it can't be just a short formula of any kind. Special functions init and deinit must finish their operation maximally quickly and in no case run into a cycle path trying to start the whole operation before calling the start function.

It was always very satisfying when a problem came out in terms of a special function. Various representations can be used for the evaluation; the simplest way to evaluate a function is to expand it into a Taylor series.

And already with evidence of special functions. Within a few years, there were many tables of logarithms. Special functions can be called from any program part in accordance with the general order of function calls.

As it turns out, Leibniz had already talked about dilogarithms. However, such representation may converge slowly or not at all. At first I thought perhaps I should try talking to experts.Now I'm studying the topic that uses the special functions frequently, so I find myself in need for some good reference book on the properties and equalities of the special functions.

The optimal one might be the book with dictionary-like or handbook type lists of the properties of the special functions with sufficient amount of proofs.
