The Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society hailed this threevolume series as "The most widely cited mathematical works of all time and a basic reference source for generations of applied mathematicians and physicists throughout the world." Working from extensive notes on familiar special functions by the renowned mathematician Harry Bateman, a team of editors not only finished Bateman's original project but also made significant advances in mathematical analysis. The books, which can be used independently of each other, consist of Volume 1, which focuses on hypergeometric series; Volume 2, an exploration of Bessel functions, orthogonal polynomials, and elliptic functions and integrals; and Volume 3, an examination of automorphic functions, spheroidal and ellipsoidal wave functions, and other functions.
