JacobiCD

JacobiCD[u, m]
gives the Jacobi elliptic function cd(u|m).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • , where phi=am(u❘m).
  • cd(u❘m) is a doubly periodic function in u with periods 4 K(m) and 2 i K(1-m), where K is the elliptic integral EllipticK.
  • JacobiCD is a meromorphic function in both arguments.
  • For certain special arguments, JacobiCD automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • JacobiCD can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
  • JacobiCD automatically threads over lists.
