SinIntegral

SinIntegral[z]
gives the sine integral function ).
  • Mathematical function, suitable for both symbolic and numerical manipulation.
  • .
  • SinIntegral[z] is an entire function of with no branch cut discontinuities.
  • For certain special arguments, SinIntegral automatically evaluates to exact values.
  • SinIntegral can be evaluated to arbitrary numerical precision.
