With students of Physics chiefly in mind, we have collected the material on special functions that is most important in mathematical physics and quantum mechanics.
We have not attempted to provide the most extensive collection possible of information about special functions, but have set ourselves the task of finding an exposition which, based on a unified approach, ensures the possibility of applying the theory in other natural sciences, since it provides a simple and effective method for the independent solution of problems that arise in practice in physics, engineering and mathematics.
