History of special functions [ ] Classical theory [ ] While can be codified—as was clear already to expert mathematicians of the eighteenth century if not before —the search for a complete and unified theory of special functions has continued since the nineteenth century.
and in particular theirexplain what a can be in general; from 1950 onwards substantial parts of classical theory could be recast in terms of Lie groups. The high point of special function theory in the period 1800—1900 was the theory of ; treatises that were essentially complete, such as that ofcould be written as handbooks to all the basic identities of the theory. Evaluation of special functions [ ] Most special functions are considered as a function of a variable.
This article needs additional citations for. They are ; the singularities and cuts are described; the differential and integral representations are known and the expansion to the or are available. In addition, sometimes there exist relations with other special functions; a complicated special function can be expressed in terms of simpler functions.
Thanks to its unique thumb-tab indexing feature, answers are easy to find based upon the type of problem they solve. The laterunder the editorship ofattempted to be encyclopedic, and came around the time when electronic computation was coming to the fore and tabulation ceased to be the main issue.
