Large coverage of functions such as bessel functions, and hypergeometric functions.
It should be on the desks of most physicists and engineers.
5 stars seems a bit silly...I wouldnt say "I love it"...but it does what it says and is the one stop shop (I guess) for anything to do with mathematical functions...
Every function you've ever heard of, and many many more, are approached from every angle. Rigorously defined, and hundreds of properties, all listed in a logical order. Useful formulas are always simple to find. Whilst the numerical methods for evaluating functions could do with an update in places, they are always clearly explained. True, the tables are larger than they need to be, but nevertheless often serve as convenient reference for tests.
This is a truly remarkable compilation. Perhaps a few hundred years down the line, this book will be regarded as affectionately, and considered as significant achievement as the first dictionary!
This book has to be one of the most interesting mathematical tomes ever put together. Can't vouch for its usefulness in the field (I'm an amateur myself), but I reckon that if you know exactly what you're doing (and can't find a computer to do all the hard work for you), then this could be a godsend.
Mind you, I wonder how many professional mathematicians and engineers would use more than the tiny fraction of the information here that is directly relevant to their field ... but then again, for sheer brain expansion it's worth its weight in integrals.
