index of special functions

The term is not a completely precise mathematical term. It usually refers to a functionMathworldPlanetmath of one or more real or complex variables which is either of use in some application or interesting in its own right, and hence has been studied enough to warrant giving it a name. Special functions are usually named after the mathematician who first introduced them or contributed much to their theory although, as in the rest of mathematics, such attributions are not always accurate, and they should be taken with a grain of salt.
