The NIST Handbook of Mathematical Functions, together with its Web counterpart, the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions (DLMF), is the culmination of a project that was conceived in 1996 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Abramowitz and I. A. Stegun, editors); and to disseminate essentially the same information from a public Web site operated by NIST.

A summary of the responsibilities of these groups may help in understanding the structure and results of this project.
