**Basic Methods for Computing Special Functions**

This paper gives an overview of methods for the numerical eval-uation of special functions, that is, the functions that arise in many problems from mathematical physics, engineering, probability theory, and other applied sciences. We consider in detail a selection of ba- sic methods which are frequently used in the numerical evaluation of special functions: converging and asymptotic series ...
