B Jones. The book splits naturally into three parts: Part i discussing the concept, correspondence and conver- gence of continued fractions as well as the relation to Pade approximants and orthogonal polynomials, Part II on the numerical computation of the continued fraction elements and approximants, the truncation and round- off error bounds and finally Part Ill on the families of special functions for which we present continued fraction representations Special functions are pervasive in all fields of science and industry. The most well-known application areas are in phySICS, engineering, chemistry, computer science and statistics. Because of their importance, several books and websites(see for instance functions. wolfram. com)and a large col- lection of papers have been devoted to these functions. of the standard work on the subject, the Handbook of mathematical functions with for mulas, graphs and mathematical tables edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene stegun, the American National Institute of Standards and Technol- ogy claims to have sold over 700 000 copies(over 150 000 directly and more than fourfold that number through commercial publishers)! But so far no project has been devoted to the systematic study of continued fraction representations for these functions. This handbook is the result of such an endeavour. We emphasise that only 10% of the continued fractions contained in this book, can also be found in the abramowitz and Stegun project or at the Wolfram website The fact that the belgian and norwegian authors could collaborate in pairs at their respective home institutes in Antwerp(Belgium) and Trondheim (Norway) offered clear advantages. Nevertheless, most progress with the manuscript was booked during the so-called handbook workshops which were organised at regular intervals, three to four times a year, by the first four authors A. Cuyt, V.B. Petersen, B. Verdonk and H. Waadeland. They got together a staggering 16 times, at different host institutes, for a total of 28 weeks to compose. streamline and discuss the contents of the different chapters The Belgian and Norwegian pair were also welcomed for two or more weeks at the MFO(Oberwolfach, Germany), CWI(Amsterdam, The Nether lds), University of La Laguna(Tenerife, Spain), the University of Stel lenbosch(South-Africa) and last, but certainly not least, the University of
