A Handbook of Integer Sequences contains a main table of 2300 sequences of integers that are collected from all branches of mathematics and science.

This handbook describes how to use the main table and provides methods for analyzing and describing unknown and important sequences. This compilation also serves as an index to the literature for locating references on a particular problem and quickly finds numbers such as 712, number of partitions of 30, 18th Catalan number, or expansion of ? to 60 decimal places. Other topics include the method of differences, self-generating sequences, polyominoes, permutations, and puzzle sequences.

This publication is a good source for students and researchers who are confronted with strange and important sequences.
