AdvancedMathEllipticK Method
Computes the complete elliptic integral of the first kind.

Namespace:  Meta.Numerics.Functions
Assembly:  Meta.Numerics (in Meta.Numerics.dll) Version: 3.1.0.0 (3.1.0.0)
Syntax
public static double EllipticK(
	double k
)

Parameters

k
Type: SystemDouble
The elliptic modulus, which must lie between zero and one.

Return Value

Type: Double
The value of the Legendre integral K(k).
Exceptions
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionk lies outside [0, 1].
Remarks

K(k) is defined as the complete elliptic integral:

It appears in the Legendre reduction of integrals of rational funtions.

Be aware that some authors use the the parameter m = k2 instead of the modulus k.
