At the Mathematical Functions website, we have a collection of most of the known formulas for practically all mathematical functions. It is organized in such a way as to allow for expansion, citation, searching, conversion of formulas, and substantial computer support from the Mathematica system.

Currently (June 2002) the site includes more than 37,300 formulas for the approximately 250 elementary and special functions that are available in Mathematica. It is already the biggest online collection of formulas presented in different format types (Mathematica notebooks, HTML, and PDF). The site also has a well-developed, unified structure; in particular, the organization of mathematical files and programming solutions allows for semiautomatic updating and citation of formulas. The site contains thousands of new or adapted-to Mathematica formulas for elementary and classical special functions.

In this talk we will outline some of the material available at the Mathematical Functions site and also discuss how it was put together.
