Special Functions in Wolfram|Alpha
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|Special functions describe a large number of phenomena in mathematical physics and other disciplines. Michael Trott posts here about Wolfram|Alpha's treatment of these functions. In particular, there are some with two forms: a simpler version that makes certain assumptions about a situation, and a more complex version that takes into account all the parameters of the situation. Wolfram|Alpha will compute either version.|
