These sources are generally compendiums of in-depth essays written by various authors on specific topics in mathematics; formulas, tables, functions may be included.
Handbook of applicable mathematics. Chief editor, Walter Ledermann. Chichester; New York: J. Wiley, c1980-c1985. *R-Science QA36 .H36. A series of core volumes on algebra, probability, numerical methods, analysis, geometry/combinatorics, and statistics, with a focus is on the practice of mathematics.
Handbook of mathematical, scientific, and engineering formulas, tables, functions, graphs, transforms. Staff of Research and Education Association; M. Fogiel, director. Piscataway, N.J.: Research and Education Association, c1997. *R-SIBL QA40 .H357. Provides formulas, tables, functions, etc. with very little text explanations. The first part covers the various areas in math with a section on special functions (gamma, beta, Bessel, Z transform). The second section is on science and engineering data in structural design, mechanical technology, biomedical technology, electrical and chemical technology, and tables of compound interest factors.
