AdvancedMathEllipticE Method (Double, Double)

Computes the incomplete elliptic integral of the second kind.

Namespace:  Meta.Numerics.Functions
Assembly:  Meta.Numerics (in Meta.Numerics.dll) Version: 4.0.5.0 (4.0.5.0)
Syntax
public static double EllipticE(
	double phi,
	double k
)

Parameters

phi
Type: SystemDouble
The amplitude (in radians).
k
Type: SystemDouble
The elliptic modulus, which must lie between zero and one.

Return Value

Type: Double
The value of E(phi,k).
Remarks

The incomplete elliptic integral of the second kind is:

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.
