Description

Special functions are often at the heart of computations with Mathematica. I will outline evolutionary improvements of legacy special functions and present functions new in an upcoming version of Mathematica. Their usage will be exemplified through applications. New functions covered will include: Kelvin functions, Whittaker functions, parabolic cylinder D, spherical Bessel functions, functions of the spheroidal family, Bell numbers, and Bell polynomials.
