Any good books on gamma functions

  1. May 24, 2014 #1
    Are there any good textbooks for gamma functions? Explaining them?
    Because I need to evaluate stuff like ∫e^x^3 dx or ∫sin(x^2) dx

    Abramowitz & Stegun's "Handbook of Mathematical Functions" was the standard reference for a number of years:


    For people who are interested in a more recent reference, there is the NIST "Handbook of Mathematical Functions"


    I'm sure if you search the web, you'll probably run across a copy of the latter work somewhere.

    For a rather extensive reference on integrals of various functions, Gradshteyn & Ryzhik's "Table of Integrals, Series, and Products" is very handy to have. It should be available in most college libraries.
