…
►These include, for example, multivalued functions of complex variables, for which new definitions of branch points and principal values are supplied (§§1.10(vi), 4.2(i)); the Dirac delta (or delta function), which is introduced in a more readily comprehensible way for mathematicians (§1.17); numerically satisfactory solutions of differential and difference equations (§§2.7(iv), 2.9(i)); and numerical analysis for complex variables (Chapter 3).
…
►For example, for the hypergeometric function we often use the notation $\mathbf{F}(a,b;c;z)$ (§15.2(i)) in place of the more conventional
${}_{2}F_{1}(a,b;c;z)$ or $F(a,b;c;z)$.

►Special functions with one real variable are depicted graphically with conventional two-dimensional (2D) line graphs.
…
►Another numerical convention is that decimals followed by dots are unrounded; without the dots they are rounded.
