Abstract : A tabulation of the confluent hypergeometric function 1F1(alpha;beta;p) is given for halfintegral values of alpha(=1/2, 1/2, 3/2,...) and integral values of beta (=1,2,...10). The mesh is 0.25 for (0 < or  p < or  2.0) and 0.50 for (2.0 < p < or  10.0), and additional values for p = 20,30,....100, in steps of 10, have been computed. Accuracy of five significant figures is maintained in most instances. A short account of some of the more useful properties of the confluent hypergeometric function, and some of its applications in noise problems, as well as a comprehensive description of the methods of calculation, is included.
