The production of this volume has been the
result of the unrelenting efforts of many persons,
all of whose contributions have been instrumental
in accomplishing the task. The Editor expresses
his thanks to each and every one.
The Ad Hoc Advisory Committee individually
and together were instrumental in establishing
the basic tenets that served as a guide in the forma-
tion of the entire work. In particular, special
thanks are due to Professor Philip M. Morse for
his continuous encouragement and support.
Professors J. Todd and A. Erddlyi, panel members
of the Conferences on Tables and members of the
Advisory Committee have maintained an un-
diminished interest, offered many suggestions and
carefully read all the chapters.
Irene A. Stegun has served effectively as associate
editor, sharing in each stage of the planning of
the volume. Without her untiring efforts, com-
pletion would never have been possible.
Appreciation is expressed for the generous
cooperation of publishers and authors in granting
permission for the use of their source material.
Acknowledgments for tabular material taken
wholly or in part from published works are given
on the first page of each table. Myrtle R. Kelling-
ton corresponded with authors and publishers
to obtain formal permission for including their
material, maintained uniformity throughout the
bibliographic references and assisted in preparing
the introductory material.
Valuable assistance in the preparation, checkin
and editing of the tabular material was receive
from Ruth E. Capuano, Elizabeth F. Godefroy,
David S. Liepman, Kermit Nelson, Bertha H.
Walter and Ruth Zucker.
Equally important has been the untiring
cooperation, assistance, and patience of the
members of the NBS staff in handling the myriad
of detail necessarily attending the publication
of a volume of this magnitude. Especially
appreciated have been the helpful discussions and
services from the members of the Office of Techni-
cal Information in the areas of editorial format,
graphic art layout, printing detail, preprinting
reproduction needs, as well as attention to pro-
motional detail and financial support. In addition,
the clerical and typing st& of the Applied Mathe-
matics Division merit commendation for their
efficient and patient production of manuscript
copy involving complicated technical notation.
Finally, the continued support of Dr. E. W.
Cannon, chief of the Applied Mathematics
Division, and the advice of Dr. F. L. Alt, assistant
chief, as well as of the many mathematicians in
the Division, is gratefully acknowledged.
