This paper exposes properties of the Whittaker cardinal function and illustrates the use of this function as a mathematical tool. The cardinal function is derived using the Paley-Wiener theorem. The cardinal function and the central-difference expansions are linked through their similarities. A bound is obtained on the difference between the cardinal function and the function which it interpolates. Several cardinal functions of a number of special functions are examined. It is shown how thedoi:10.2307/2005140 fatcat:smi3yhvhebfb3ecf72cemlljk4
