| | It provides information on most of the **functions** then widely used in numerical computation in engineering and the physical sciences, including many formulas, and numerical tables of values for most of the **functions**. |

| | First, because algorithms for computing numerical values of **mathematically** **functions** have improved dramatically over the 37 years since this work was published, you will not find suitable algorithms for computing values of the various **functions** discussed. |

| | Second, and for much the same reason, you should not assume that all the numerical values given in all the tables are completely accurate; in 1964 calculations of some of these values with then-known algorithms pushed the state of the art to the limit. |
