InverseJacobiCN[v, m]
gives the inverse Jacobi elliptic function cn^(-1)(v❘m).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • cn^(-1)(v❘m) gives the value of u for which v=cn(u❘m).
  • InverseJacobiCN has branch cut discontinuities in the complex v plane with branch points at ±1, and infinity, and in the complex m plane with branch points at 1/(1-z^2) and infinity.
  • The inverse Jacobi elliptic functions are related to elliptic integrals.
  • For certain special arguments, InverseJacobiCN automatically evaluates to exact values.
