Abstract:

A tabulation of the confluent hypergeometric function 1F1alphabeta-p is given for half-integral values of alpha-12, 12, 32,... and integral values of beta 1,2,...10. The mesh is 0.25 for 0 or - p or - 2.0 and 0.50 for 2.0 p or - 10.0, and additional values for p 20,30,....100, in steps of 10, have been computed. Accuracy of five significant figures is maintained in most instances. A short account of some of the more useful properties of the confluent hypergeometric function, and some of its applications in noise problems, as well as a comprehensive description of the methods of calculation, is included.
