# scipy.special.sici¶

scipy.special.sici(x, out=None) = <ufunc 'sici'>

Sine and cosine integrals.

The sine integral is

$\int_0^x \frac{\sin{t}}{t}dt$

and the cosine integral is

$\gamma + \log(x) + \int_0^x \frac{\cos{t} - 1}{t}dt$

where $$\gamma$$ is Euler’s constant and $$\log$$ is the principle branch of the logarithm.

Parameters: x : array_like Real or complex points at which to compute the sine and cosine integrals. si : ndarray Sine integral at x ci : ndarray Cosine integral at x

Notes

For real arguments with x < 0, ci is the real part of the cosine integral. For such points ci(x) and ci(x + 0j) differ by a factor of 1j*pi.

For real arguments the function is computed by calling Cephes’  sici routine. For complex arguments the algorithm is based on Mpmath’s  si and ci routines.
