    In many different areas of mathematics one meets special function. For example: gamma function, (q-)binomial coeeficients, exp/log- and sin/cos-integrals, Airy and Bessel functions, (q-)hypergeometric series, or orthogonal polynomials. The lecture discusses elementary properties of such functions. A particular emphasis is put on computer algebra algebra algorithms for proving identities.
