§19.37(iii) Legendre’s Incomplete Integrals

Functions F(ϕ,k) and E(ϕ,k)

Tabulated for ϕ=0(5)90, k2=0(.01)1 to 10D by Fettis and Caslin (1964).

Tabulated for ϕ=0(1)90, k2=0(.01)1 to 7S by Beli͡akov et al. (1962). (F(ϕ,k) is presented as Π(ϕ,0,k).)

Tabulated for ϕ=0(5)90, k=0(.01)1 to 10D by Fettis and Caslin (1964).

Tabulated for ϕ=0(5)90, arcsink=0(1)90 to 6D by Byrd and Friedman (1971), for ϕ=0(5)90, arcsink=0(2)90 and 5(10)85 to 8D by Abramowitz and Stegun (1964, Chapter 17), and for ϕ=0(10)90, arcsink=0(5)90 to 9D by Zhang and Jin (1996, pp. 674–675).

Function Π(ϕ,α2,k)

Tabulated (with different notation) for ϕ=0(15)90, α2=0(.1)1, arcsink=0(15)90 to 5D by Abramowitz and Stegun (1964, Chapter 17), and for ϕ=0(15)90, α2=0(.1)1, arcsink=0(15)90 to 7D by Zhang and Jin (1996, pp. 676–677).

Functions RF(x2,1,y2) and RG(x2,1,y2)

Tabulated for x=0(.1)1, y=1(.2)6 to 3D by Nellis and Carlson (1966).

Function RF(a2,b2,c2) with abc=1

Tabulated for σ=0(.05)0.5(.1)1(.2)2(.5)5, cos(3γ)=-1(.2)1 to 5D by Carlson (1961a). Here σ2=23((lna)2+(lnb)2+(lnc)2), cos(3γ)=(4/σ3)(lna)(lnb)(lnc), and a,b,c are semiaxes of an ellipsoid with the same volume as the unit sphere.

Check Values

For check values of symmetric integrals with real or complex variables to 14S see Carlson (1995).
