|Abstract:||The NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF) is a reference work providing information on the properties of the special functions of applied mathematics. It is a successor to the highly successful NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions (Abramowitz and Stegun, eds., 1964). The DLMF is distributed as both a freely available online resource and as a traditional printed handbook. Here we describe the project's origin and how it was carried out. We also contrast the DLMF's technical content with that of Abramowitz & Stegun, and describe some of its innovative online features.|
