More explanation than Bronstein. Lots of numerical examples. Do not know if that is still in print. The original version came from East Germany.
Thanks for the hint. So an English translation of "Kleine Enzyklop├Ądie Mathematik" exists as well.

I can recommend this one as well. However, what I don't like about (AS and) NIST is their use of some misleading nomenclature, like prefixing inverse hyperbolic functions with arc- (as if for arcus) rather than ar- (for area).

Quote:Oldham et al.: An Atlas of Functions. The first edition had algorithms for programming. Nice graphics.
Owning the second edition, I agree, this is a really nice book.
