    Containing more than 6,000 entries, CRC Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulas, 33rd Edition continues to provide essential formulas, tables, figures and detailed descriptions. The newest edition of this popular series also features many diagrams, group tables, and integrals that are not available online.

    This edition also incorporates important topics such as max plus algebra, financial options, pseudospectra, and proof methods. Newly updated topics reflecting new results include couple analogues, radar, and significant equations of mathematics.

    New features of the 33rd edition include:

    • Larger trim size, five new topics, and topics which have been modified to update results
    • Provides practical, ready-to-use information and covers important topics that are unfamiliar to many readers, such as visual proofs and sequences
    • Includes hard-to-find and more complete information than found in the Internet such as table of conformal mappings and integral tables
    • Adds descriptions of new functions: Lambert, prolate spheroidal, and Weierstrass

    Even though the book has been updated it retains the same successful format of previous editions in that material is still presented in a multi-sectional format.

    Numbers and Elementary Mathematics. Algebra. Discrete Mathematics. Geometry. Analysis. Special Functions. Probability and Statistics. Scientific Computing. Mathematical Formulae from the Sciences. Miscellaneous. List of References. List of Figures. List of Notation. Index.

    The 33rd edition of this remarkable title, first published almost 90 years ago, retains the general layout of the 30th edition (CH, Oct'96, 34-0978). At over 800 pages, it is still a very large volume, with over 6,000 entries that provide formulas, tables, figures, and detailed descriptions. In the editions since the revamping of the 30th edition, major changes worth noting are the additions of game theory and voting power, heuristic search techniques, quadratic fields, reliability, risk analysis, and decision rules, to name just a few additions from the 31st edition; in the 32nd edition, a new chapter titled “Mathematical Formulas from the Sciences” was added that includes a total of 26 topics, ranging from astrophysics to finance; this chapter was further expanded in the 33rd edition to include biology, chemistry and radar. Also added in the 32nd edition are new new materials in cellular automata, knot theory, music, quaternions, and rational trigonometry. In all editions many tables have been updated and streamlined. The publisher and the editor aim to update regularly with the most current information; input is solicited on the book's website, which also contains errata (as of this writing, this website was not updated with the 33rd edition). This resource is also available digitally on the Proquest platform.
