Notes

Wrapper for the Cephes  routine ellie.

Computation uses arithmetic-geometric means algorithm.

The parameterization in terms of $$m$$ follows that of section 17.2 in . Other parameterizations in terms of the complementary parameter $$1 - m$$, modular angle $$\sin^2(\alpha) = m$$, or modulus $$k^2 = m$$ are also used, so be careful that you choose the correct parameter.

The Legendre E incomplete integral can be related to combinations of Carlson’s symmetric integrals R_D, R_F, and R_G in multiple ways . For example, with $$c = \csc^2\phi$$,

$E(\phi, m) = R_F(c-1, c-k^2, c) - \frac{1}{3} k^2 R_D(c-1, c-k^2, c) .$
