Lambert W function for applications in physics

Abstract

The Lambert W(x) function and its possible applications in physics are presented. The actual numerical implementation in C++ consists of Halley’s and Fritsch’s iterations with initial approximations based on branch-point expansion, asymptotic series, rational fits, and continued-logarithm recursion.
