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";] ekt
