Software Test Service for Special Functions Proposed

January 1997

NISTIR 5916, A Proposed Software Test Service for Special Functions, proposes the development of a software test service at NIST for use in testing the accuracy, or numerical precision, of mathematical software for special functions. The service would use the World Wide Web to receive test requests and to return test results. The service would be useful to anyone who uses special functions in physics or other applications. It also would stimulate the interest of applied mathematicians in the computation of special functions as well as the interest of computer scientists in innovative uses of the Internet. The author welcomes comments on any aspect of the proposed service.
