This book gives introductory chapters on the classical basic and standard methods for asymptotic analysis, such as Watson's lemma, Laplace's method, the saddle point and steepest descent methods, stationary phase and Darboux's method. The methods, explained in great detail, will obtain asymptotic approximations of the well-known special functions of mathematical physics and probability theory. After these introductory chapters, the methods of uniform asymptotic analysis are described in which several parameters have influence on typical phenomena: turning points and transition points, coinciding saddle and singularities. In all these examples, the special functions are indicated that describe the peculiar behavior of the integrals. The text extensively covers the classical methods with an emphasis on how to obtain expansions, and how to use the results for numerical methods, in particular for approximating special functions. In this way, we work with a computational mind: how can we use certain expansions in numerical analysis and in computer programs, how can we compute coefficients, and so on. Contents:Basic Methods for IntegralsBasic Methods: Examples for Special FunctionsOther Methods for IntegralsUniform Methods for IntegralsUniform Methods for Laplace-Type IntegralsUniform Examples for Special FunctionsA Class of Cumulative Distribution Functions Readership: Researchers in applied mathematics, engineering, physics, mathematical statistics, probability theory and biology. The introductory parts and examples will be useful for post-graduate students in mathematics. Key Features:The book gives a complete overview of the classical asymptotic methods for integralsThe many examples give insight in the behavior of the well-known special functionsThe detailed explanations on how to obtain the coefficients in the expansions make the results useful for numerical applications, in particular, for computing special functionsThe many results on asymptotic representations of special functions supplement and extend those in the NIST Handbook of Mathematical FunctionsKeywords:Asymptotic Analysis;Approximation of Integrals;Asymptotic Approximations;Asymptotic Expansions;Steepest Descent Methods;Saddle Point Methods;Stationary Phase Method;Special Functions;Numerical Approximation of Special Functions;Cumulative Distribution FunctionsReviews: “The book is a useful contribution to the literature.

This book defines sets of orthogonal polynomials and derives a number of properties satisfied by any such set. It continues by describing the classical orthogonal polynomials and the additional properties they have.The first chapter defines the orthogonality condition for two functions. It then gives an iterative process to produce a set of polynomials which are orthogonal to one another and then describes a number of properties satisfied by any set of orthogonal polynomials. The classical orthogonal polynomials arise when the weight function in the orthogonality condition has a particular form. These polynomials have a further set of properties and in particular satisfy a second order differential equation.Each subsequent chapter investigates the properties of a particular polynomial set starting from its differential equation.

The ICMS Developer's Meeting is an international congress for which the main theme is mathematical software. The 2010 meeting was the third of a series of meetings of similar theme, the ?rst being held in Beijing, China in 2002,and the second in Castro-Urdiales, Spain in 2006. The ?eld of mathematics has numerous branches, and in each branch we ?nd that algorithms, and also implementations and applications of software s- tems, are studied. Researchers who endeavor to make such studies also have international meetings within their speci'c branches of mathematics, and these meetings have made signi'cant contributions to the ?elds in which they lie. The ICMS (International Congresseson Mathematical Software), on the other hand, is a general (not branch speci'c) meeting on mathematical software, which is held every four years, and is a rare opportunity for developers of mathematical softwarefrom di'erent branchesof mathematics, as well as mathematicians who are interested in mathematical software, to gather together.

This highly comprehensive handbook provides a substantial advance in the computation of elementary and special functions of mathematics, extending the function coverage of major programming languages well beyond their international standards, including full support for decimal floating-point arithmetic. Written with clarity and focusing on the C language, the work pays extensive attention to little-understood aspects of floating-point and integer arithmetic, and to software portability, as well as to important historical architectures. It extends support to a future 256-bit, floating-point format offering 70 decimal digits of precision. Select Topics and Features: references an exceptionally useful, author-maintained MathCW website, containing source code for the book’s software, compiled libraries for numerous systems, pre-built C compilers, and other related materials; offers a unique approach to covering mathematical-function computation using decimal arithmetic; provides extremely versatile appendices for interfaces to numerous other languages: Ada, C#, C++, Fortran, Java, and Pascal; presupposes only basic familiarity with computer programming in a common language, as well as early level algebra; supplies a library that readily adapts for existing scripting languages, with minimal effort; supports both binary and decimal arithmetic, in up to 10 different floating-point formats; covers a significant portion (with highly accurate implementations) of the U.S National Institute of Standards and Technology’s 10-year project to codify mathematical functions. This highly practical text/reference is an invaluable tool for advanced undergraduates, recording many lessons of the intermingled history of computer hardw are and software, numerical algorithms, and mathematics. In addition, professional numerical analysts and others will find the handbook of real interest and utility because it builds on research by the mathematical software community over the last four decades.

As a result of researchers’ and scientists’ increasing interest in pure as well as applied mathematics in non-conventional models, particularly those using fractional calculus, Mittag-Leffler functions have recently caught the interest of the scientific community. Focusing on the theory of the Mittag-Leffler functions, the present volume offers a self-contained, comprehensive treatment, ranging from rather elementary matters to the latest research results. In addition to the theory the authors devote some sections of the work to the applications, treating various situations and processes in viscoelasticity, physics, hydrodynamics, diffusion and wave phenomena, as well as stochastics. In particular the Mittag-Leffler functions allow us to describe phenomena in processes that progress or decay too slowly to be represented by classical functions like the exponential function and its successors. The book is intended for a broad audience, comprising graduate students, university instructors and scientists in the field of pure and applied mathematics, as well as researchers in applied sciences like mathematical physics, theoretical chemistry, bio-mathematics, theory of control and several other related areas.
