This book, "Handbook For Computing Elementary Functions: International Series Of Monographs On Pure And Applied Mathematics - Volume 76" by L.A. Lyusternik, O.A. Chervonenkis, and A.R. Yanpol'skii, is a mathematics book published by Pergamon Press in 1965. This handbook contains a very large collection of formulae used for computing elementary mathematical functions. These cover polynomials, rational functions, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, inverse trigonometric, hyperbolic and inverse hyperbolic functions. For each class of functions, after giving general information, techniques for evaluating it are listed under the following headings: Power series; Infinite products; Rational functions; Expansion into polynomials, orthogonal and other-wise; Polynomial approximations to specified degrees of accuracy; Continued fractions; Iterative processes; and Digit-by-digit techniques. A short chapter is devoted to listing the methods used for evaluating these functions on a number of Soviet computers. The appendices give analytic and numerical properties of a number of auxiliary functions useful in computational work, including several types of orthogonal polynomials. Full references to sources for the various formulae are given in an extensive bibliography covering two centuries. Designed for applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists and computer programmers in both the academic and industrial fields who need to evaluate these elementary functions; the book can also be used as a reference volume by students of numerical analysis and programming courses at universities and colleges of technology. First English Edition. Condition: Good with some light foxing and tanning. Dust jacket: Fair with general wear along the edges. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
