Elliptic Integrals

Description

• 

Elliptic integrals are integrals of the form

∫abRx,yⅆx

• 

with R a rational function and y a polynomial of degree 3 or 4. This is the algebraic form of an elliptic integral. There are also trig forms (rational functions of sin and cos and a square root of a quadratic polynomial in sin and cos) and hyperbolic trig forms.

• 

Elliptic integrals are reduced to their Legendre normal form in terms of elementary functions and the Elliptic functions EllipticF, EllipticE, and EllipticPi (or their complete versions).
