You might be interested in the online version of the Handbook of
Mathematical functions from NIST.  It is available at
http://dlmf.nist.gov/.


You can download a formula to Mathematica by Importing in LaTeX or
MathML from the URL provided with a formula.  For example:

A generating function for the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind may
be found at http://dlmf.nist.gov/18.12, equation 7 and downloaded using
any of the three following.

LaTeX -- 
     Import["http://dlmf.nist.gov/18.12.E7.tex","NotebookObject";]
     The LaTeX option brings up a notebook displaying the function --
     but it generally requires some editing to convert it into valid
     Mathematica input syntax.

MathML -- 
    Import["http://dlmf.nist.gov/18.12.E7.pMML","MathML";]
    I have not been able to do anything useful with the MathML input.  

If you only want a picture --
    Import["http://dlmf.nist.gov/18.12.E7.png";]
