Abstract : A tabulation of the confluent hypergeometric function (l)Fl(a;b;p) is given for halfintegral values of a(=l/2, 1/2, 3/2,...) and integral values of b (=1, 2, ...10). The mesh is 0.25 for (0<p< 2.0) and 0.5 for (2<p<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.
