Special Functions

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


In this chapter we shall consider various special functions which have found prominent and widespread applications in physics and engineering. Most of these functions cannot be expressed via a finite combination of elementary functions, and are solutions of non-trivial differential equations. Their careful consideration is our main objective here.
