EllipticF[, m]
gives the elliptic integral of the first kind F(phi❘m).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • For -pi/2<phi<pi/2, .
  • EllipticF[, m] has a branch cut discontinuity running along the ray from csc^2(phi) to infinity.
  • For certain special arguments, EllipticF automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • EllipticF can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
