Publisher: viXra 2016
Number of pages: 69
The present document is concerned with the review of the most frequently special functions applied in scientific fields such as Bessel functions, Mathieu functions, the Gamma function, the Beta function, Jacobi functions... We review their principal properties and their interactions with different branches especially in mathematics.

In semi-classical analysis many of the basic results involve asymptotic expansions in which the terms can by computed by symbolic techniques and the focus of these lecture notes will be the 'symbol calculus' that this creates.
