Higher Mathematical Functions
Mathematica includes over five hundred higher mathematical
functions, including almost all of the functions of mathematical physics.
- Names of functions are usually complete English words.
- Mathematical functions that are usually referred to by a person's
name have names in Mathematica of the form PersonSymbol.
For example, the Legendre polynomials are denoted by
- If the standard notation for a mathematical function involves both
subscripts and superscripts, the subscript is given before the superscript
in the Mathematica form. For example, the associated Legendre
polynomials are denoted as LegendreP[n, m,
