This is a list of special function eponyms in mathematics, to cover the theory of special functions, the differential equations they satisfy, named differential operators of the theory (but not intended to include every mathematical eponym).Named symmetric functions, and other special polynomials, are included.

'The book is full of beautiful and interesting formulae, as was always the case with mathematics centred around special functions. It is written in the spirit of the old masters, with mathemtics developed in terms of formulas. There are many historical comments in the book. It can be recommended as a very useful reference.'Cited by: This is an outstanding book on special functions though it doesn't seem well known in the West.

At first sight it appears to follow the path of Whittaker and Watson, Special functions. book on closer examination it actually treats the subject(s) quite differently, sometimes better, dare I say.5/5(5). Of course this book cannot be compared to " A course Special functions.

I would also like to make a tribute to Richard Silverman for translating (not just direct traslating, he translate in a style make it /5(19). Richard Silverman's new translation makes available to English readers the work of the famous contemporary Russian mathematician N.

Though extensive treatises on special functions are available, these do not serve the student or the applied mathematician as well as Lebedev's introductory and practically oriented approach.4/5(3). 1!B 1(x)=B 0x+B 1 2!B 2(x)=B 0x2+2B 1x+B 2 3!B 3(x)=B 0x3+3B 1x2+3B 2x+B 3 etc: Some authors de ne the Bernoulli polynomials (on (−1;1)) to be the right hand sides of the above equa- tions.

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.

Asymptotics and Special Functions provides a comprehensive introduction to two important topics in classical analysis: asymptotics and special functions. The integrals of a real variable and contour integrals are discussed, along with the Liouville-Green approximation and connection formulas for solutions of differential equations.

"This treatise presents an overview of special functions, focusing primarily on hypergeometric functions and the associated hypergeometric series, including Bessel functions and classical orthogonal polynomials.

The basic building block of the functions studied in this book is the gamma function. Presents an overview of the area of special functions, focusing on the hypergeometric functions and the associated hypergeometric series, such as the gamma and beta functions, Bessel functions, Particular emphasis is placed on formulas that can be used in computation.

Modern engineering and physical science applications demand a thorough knowledge of applied mathematics, particularly special functions. These typically arise in applications such as communication systems, electro-optics, nonlinear wave propagation, electromagnetic theory, electric circuit theory, and quantum mechanics.

The Handbook of Special Functions provides in-depth coverage of special functions, which are used to help solve many of the most difficult problems in physics, engineering, and mathematics. The book presents new results along with well-known formulas used in many of the most important mathematical methods in order to solve a wide variety of.

Most space devoted to the application of cylinder functions and spherical harmonics. Also explores gamma function, probability integral and related functions, Airy functions, hyper-geometric functions, more. The subject of special functions is often presented as a collection of disparate results, which are rarely organised in a coherent way.

This book answers the need for a different approach to the subject. The authors' main goals are to emphasise general unifying principles coherently and to provide clear motivation, efficient proofs, and original references for all of the principal results.

The subjects treated in this book have been especially chosen to represent a bridge connecting the content of a first course on the elementary theory of analytic functions with a rigorous treatment of some of the most important special functions: the Euler gamma function, the Gauss hypergeometric function, and the Kummer confluent hypergeometric : Springer International Publishing.

The two parts of this sharply focused book, Hypergeometric and Special Functions and Harmonic Analysis on Semisimple Symmetric Spaces, are derived from lecture notes for the European School of Group Theory, a forum providing high-level.

A standard scheme for a relation between special functions and group representation theory is the following: certain classes of special functions are interpreted as matrix elements of irreducible representations of a certain Lie group, and then properties of special functions are related to (and derived from) simple well-known facts of representation theory.

Special functions arise in many problems of pure and applied mathematics, mathematical statistics, physics, and engineering. This book provides an up-to-date overview of numerical methods for computing special functions and discusses when to use these methods depending on the function and the range of parameters.

Two decades of intense R&D at Wolfram Research have given the Wolfram Language by far the world's broadest and deepest coverage of special functions\[LongDash]and greatly expanded the whole domain of practical closed-form solutions. Often using original results and methods, all special functions in the Wolfram Language support arbitrary-precision evaluation for all.

Based upon the lectures on special functions which [the author has] been giving at the University of Michigan since Pages: This book, dedicated to Mizan Rahman, is made up of a collection of articles on various aspects of q-series and special functions.

Also, it includes an article by Askey, Ismail, and Koelink on Rahman’s mathematical contributions and how they influenced the recent upsurge in the subject.

Book Description. Singular Differential Equations and Special Functions is the fifth book within Ordinary Differential Equations with Applications to Trajectories and Vibrations, Six-volume a set they are the fourth volume in the series Mathematics and Physics Applied to Science and Technology.

This fifth book consists of one chapter (chapter 9 of the set). A detailed consideration of special functions is given in Special functions. We only say here that the basic code of a program is located inside these functions, as in Figures 18 and The special feature of special functions is the fact that they are called for execution by the client terminal.

Although special functions have all the. Euler discovered the gamma function, Γ(x), when he extended the domain of the factorial Γ(x) is a meromorphic function equal to (x − 1).

when x is a positive gamma function has several representations, but the two most important, found by Euler, represent it as an infinite integral and as a limit of a finite by: In particular, elementary functions are also considered as special functions." Also, looking at the Wikipedia list (linked above) the indicator function, step functions, the absolute value function and the sign are special functions -- this sounds very wrong to me.

So what is a special function and what should be under the (special-function) tag. Special functions arise in many problems of pure and applied mathematics, statistics, physics, and engineering. This book provides an up-to-date overview of methods for computing special functions and discusses when to use them in standard parameter domains, as well as in large and complex domains.
