I have been concentrating on Axiom's numerical capabilities. 
The last patch is the beginnings of regression tests against
Abramowitz and Stegun (1985) and Zwillinger's CRC Standard (2003).
I've also created firefox hyperdoc pages for the gamma function
standard from the new DLMF. I plan to fill these pages out with
Spad code and test cases as time permits.

I'm a member of the Numerical Mathematics Consortium
( recently published draft
standard, which I'm reviewing, is available at:

The A&S handbook lists polynomial coefficients for approximation of E1,
the exponential integral. Does anyone know how these coefficients were
derived? Is it a chebyshev polynomial? I want to dynamically compute
these coefficients to the required precision.
