Acknowledgments The production of this volume has been the result of the unrelenting efforts of many persons, all of whose contributions have been instrumental in accomplishing the task. The Editor expresses his thanks to each and every one. The Ad Hoc Advisory Committee individually and together were instrumental in establishing the basic tenets that served as a guide in the forma- tion of the entire work.
In particular, special thanks are due to Professor Philip M. Morse for his continuous encouragement and support. Professors J.
Todd and A. Erddlyi, panel members of the Conferences on Tables and members of the Advisory Committee have maintained an un- diminished interest, offered many suggestions and carefully read all the chapters. Irene A. Stegun has served effectively as associate editor, sharing in each stage of the planning of the volume.

Without her untiring efforts, com- pletion would never have been possible. Appreciation is expressed for the generous cooperation of publishers and authors in granting permission for the use of their source material. Emde has been invaluable to workers in these fields in its many editions 1 during the past half-century.
The present volume extends the work of these authors by giving more extensive and more accurate numerical tables, and by giving larger collections of mathematical properties of the tabulated functions. The number of functions covered has also been increased. The classification of functions and organization of the chapters in this Handbook is similar to that of An Index of Mathematical Tables by A.
Fletcher, J. Miller, and L. Many numerical examples are given to illustrate the use of the tables and also the computation of function values which lie outside their range.
At the end of the text in each chapter there is a short bibliography giving books and papers in which proofs of the mathematical properties stated in the chapter may be found.
Also listed in the bibliographies are the more important numerical tables. Comprehensive lists of tables are given in the Index mentioned above, and current information on new tables is to be found in the National Research Council quarterly Mathematics of Computation formerly Mathematical Tables and Other Aids to Computation.
The mathematical notations used in this Handbook are those commonly adopted in standard texts, particularly Higher Transcendental Functions, Volumes , by A. Magnus, F.

Oberhettinger and F. Tricomi McGraw-Hill, Some alternative notations have also been listed.
The introduction of new symbols has been kept to a minimum, and an effort has been made to avoid the use of conflicting notation. Loesch added as co-author, was published in by McGraw-Hill, U.
Comrie added as co-author, was published in two volumes in by Addison-Wesley, U. There has been no attempt to make it uniform throughout the Handbook, which would have been a costly and laborious undertaking.
In most tables at least five significant figures have been provided, and the tabular intervals have generally been chosen to ensure that linear interpolation will yield, four-or five-figure accuracy, which suffices in most physical applications. Users requiring higher precision in their interpolates may obtain them by use of higher-order interpolation procedures, described below.
In certain tables many-figured function values are given at irregular intervals in the argument. An example is provided by Table 9. The purpose of these tables is to furnish "key values" for the checking of programs for automatic computers; no question of interpolation arises.
The Editor expresses his thanks to each and every one.Askey University of Wisconsin, Madison D. One person found this helpful. For those without easy access to machines, such tables are, of course, indispensable. Reinhardt University of Washington Nico M.
