For our friends living between the Atlantic and Pacific ocean: The relevance of this book is comparable to that of the "Abramovitz & Stegun". It even has its own Wikipedia page: Bronshtein and Semendyayev. This quote may give an impression of the very comprehensive integral tables:

Quote:Due to Bronshtein and Semendyayev containing a comprehensive table of analytically solvable integrals, integrals are sometimes referred to as being "Bronshtein-integrable" in German universities if they can be looked up in the book (in playful analogy to terms like Riemann-integrability and Lebesgue-integrability).
