After a decade of preparation, the U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF) and its printed companion, the NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions
, the much-anticipated successors to the agency's most widely cited publication of all time. These modernized reference works contain a comprehensive set of mathematical tools useful for any and all specialists who work with mathematical modeling and computation.
The works comprise a complete update and expansion of the 1964 Handbook of Mathematical Functions edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene Stegun of NIST. That Handbook quickly became an indispensable reference for scientists and engineers who use the tools of applied mathematics in their work.
