Algorithm 895: a continued fractions package for special functions

Abstract 



The continued fractions for special functions package (in the sequel abbreviated as CFSF package) complements a systematic study of continued fraction representations for special functions. It provides all the functionality to create continued fractions, in particular kperiodic or limit kperiodic fractions, to compute approximants, make use of continued fraction tails, perform equivalence transformations and contractions, and much more. The package, developed in Maple, includes a library of more than 200 representations of special functions, of which only 10% can be found in the 1964 NBS Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs and Mathematical Tables by M. Abramowitz and I. Stegun.
