  • 4: Foreword
    That 1046-page tome proved to be an invaluable reference for the many scientists and engineers who use the special functions of applied mathematics in their day-to-day work, so much so that it became the most widely distributed and most highly cited NIST publication in the first 100 years of the institution’s existence. …

    6: 3.8 Nonlinear Equations
    For fixed-point methods for computing zeros of special functions, see Segura (2002), Gil and Segura (2003), and Gil et al. (2007a, Chapter 7). For describing the distribution of complex zeros of solutions of linear homogeneous second-order differential equations by methods based on the Liouville–Green (WKB) approximation, see Segura (2013). …
    7: Frank W. J. Olver
    Olver joined NIST in 1961 after having been recruited by Milton Abramowitz to be the author of the Chapter “Bessel Functions of Integer Order” in the Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs, and Mathematical Tables, a publication which went on to become the most widely distributed and most highly cited publication in NIST’s history. Olver was an applied mathematician of world renown, one of the most widely recognized contemporary scholars in the field of special functions. …, the behavior of solutions as the independent variable, or some parameter, tends to infinity, and in the study of the particular solutions of differential equations known as special functions (e. … His well-known book, Asymptotics and Special Functions, was reprinted in the AKP Classics Series by AK Peters, Wellesley, Massachusetts, in 1997. … In April 2011, NIST co-organized a conference on “Special Functions in the 21st Century: Theory & Application” which was dedicated to Olver. …
