Special functions refer to mathematical functions having particular usage in the study of analysis, physics, or another branch of science or mathematics. Typically, they come with their own conventional names and notations. Wolfram|Alpha has the ability to handle many families of special functions due to the powerful built-in functionalities of the Wolfram Language.
