## Description

Continued from the back cover: “This complete reference covers practical mathematics—from arithmetic to statistics, algebra to calculus. It also covers the use of numerical or algebraic methods and computer software algorithms, which increasingly supplement methods of analytical mathematics used today in both education and practice.

“Compiled by professional scientists, engineers, and lecturers who are experts in the day-to-day use of mathematics, internationally known for its clarity and completeness, the Handbook includes hundreds of tables and commonly used functions, formulae, transformations, and series, as well as many applications to problems of considerable value to the professional scientist or engineer working daily with scientific formulae and mathematical or numerical methods. User access is direct and swift through the user-friendly layout, structure table of contents, and extensive index.

“The math toolbox for everyone from high school math to college student to practitioner!”
