2: Errata
  • Changes

    • In Paragraph Inversion Formula in §35.2, the wording was changed to make the integration variable more apparent.

    • In many cases, the links from mathematical symbols to their definitions were corrected or improved. These links were also enhanced with ‘tooltip’ feedback, where supported by the user’s browser.

    The Web pages contain many active links, for example, to the definitions of symbols within the DLMF, and to external sources of reviews, full texts of articles, and items of mathematical software. …
    5: Foreword
    In 1964 the National Institute of Standards and Technology11 1 Then known as the National Bureau of Standards. published the Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and Mathematical Tables, edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene A. … Certainly, advances in applied mathematics have continued unabated. …The new printed volume, the NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, serves a similar function as the original A&S, though it is heavily updated and extended. The online version, the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF), presents the same technical information along with extensions and innovative interactive features consistent with the new medium. The DLMF may well serve as a model for the effective presentation of highly mathematical reference material on the Web. …
    6: Need Help?

    Sometimes Y l , m ( θ , ϕ ) is denoted by i - l 𝔇 l m ( θ , ϕ ) ; also the definition of Y l , m ( θ , ϕ ) can differ from (14.30.1), for example, by inclusion of a factor ( - 1 ) m . … Most mathematical properties of Y l , m ( θ , ϕ ) can be derived directly from (14.30.1) and the properties of the Ferrers function of the first kind given earlier in this chapter. …
