Tables of the Higher Mathematical Functions

Nature volume 134, pages 272273 (25 August 1934) | Download Citation



THIS is the first volume of an undertaking which promises to be as imposing as it is important. The work, begun in 1927 under the direction of Mr. H. T. Davis with the assistance of twenty colleagues, aims at collecting and amplifying the tables of higher mathematical functions which are scattered through the literature of the subject, and thus rendering available a vast amount of useful material which is not always readily accessible.
