Symbols for variables and constants

Clause 3 specifies that variables such as and y, and functions in general (e.g., ƒ(x)) are printed in italic type, while mathematical constants are in roman (upright) type. Examples given of mathematical (upright) constants are e, π and i. The numbers 1, 2, 3, etc. are also upright.

Function symbols and definitions

Clause 13 defines trigonometric and hyperbolic functions such as sin and tanh and their respective inverses arcsin and artanh.

Clause 19 defines numerous special functions, including the gamma function, Riemann zeta function, beta function, exponential integral, logarithmic integral, sine integral, Fresnel integrals, error function, incomplete elliptic integrals, hypergeometric functions, Legendre polynomials, spherical harmonics, Hermite polynomials, Laguerre polynomials, Chebyshev polynomials, Bessel functions, Neumann functions, Hankel functions and Airy functions.
