A New Web-Enabled Database of Special Functions
Special functions and orthogonal polynomials have many properties that
give them great utility in mathematics, statistics, science and engineering.
Traditionally these properties have been collected and published in massive
volumes such as the 1964 NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions, edited
by Abramowitz and Stegun. Using this model, NIST is developing a
totally new compendium called the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions.
Up-to-date mathematically and computationally, it will be web-enabled for
effective desktop use. Funding has been provided by the National
Science Foundation. In this talk the current status of the DLMF will
