Even in the days of Mathematica, which I've used for over 10 years, I still consult this book. For one thing I know it; though I haven't memorized it, I know it well enough to quickly find what I'm looking for and in a form I readily recognize. All of its content can be extracted from Mathematica but sometimes its conventions are different and it can take time to work them out. So when I'm in a hurry I consult this reference. Also, the conventions and notations used in "Abramowitz and Stegun" (w ...more
