NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions
TLDR
This handbook results from a 10-year project conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology with an international group of expert authors and validators and is destined to replace its predecessor, the classic but long-outdated Handbook of Mathematical Functions, edited by Abramowitz and Stegun.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is preparing a Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF) to provide useful data about special functions for a wide audience. The initial
Digital Library of Mathematical Functions
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.
Extended-Range Arithmetic and Normalized Legendre Polynomials
TLDR
An algorithm is presented for the computation of normalrzed Legendre polynomials whereby a separate storage location is allocated to the exponent of a floatmg-pomt number.
NUMERICAL EVALUATION OF SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to assist in locating useful approximations and software for the numerical generation of higher transcendental functions, and to offer some suggestions for future developments in this field.
Mathematics and Measurement
TLDR
The role that mathematics plays in measurement science at NIST is described, including the solution of ill-posed inverse problems, characterization of the accuracy of software for micromagnetic modeling, and in the development and dissemination of mathematical reference data.
Towards a Revised NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions | NIST
A modernized and updated revision of Abramowitz and Stegun, Handbook of Mathematical Functions, first published in 1964 by the National Bureau of Standards, is being planned for publication on the

TLDR
Support is provided for considering symmetric level-index arithmetic, a new form of computer arithmetic which is immune to underflow and overflow, and which arose as an asymptotic solution to a model problem in turbulent combustion.
