In this expository article we survey some properties of completely monotonic functions and give various examples, including some famous special functions. Such function are useful, for example, in probability theory. It is known, [1, p.450], for example, that a function w is the Laplace transform of an infinitely divisible probability distribution on (0,∞), if and only if w = e-h , where the derivative of h is completely monotonic and h(0+) = 0.

Complete monotonicity of functions, Definition 3.1, is often proved by showing that their inverse Laplace transforms are nonnegative. There are relatively few simple functions whose inverse Laplace
