About Elliptic Integrals of the First Kind

Definitions

The incomplete elliptic integral of the first kind is defined as:

\textrm{F}(\varphi,k) = \int_{0}^{\varphi}\frac{d\theta}{\sqrt{1-k^2\sin^2\theta}}

where k is the elliptic modulus, with -1 \le k \le 1. Variable \varphiis the Jacobi's amplitude.

The complete elliptic integral of the first kind is defined as:

\textrm{K}(k) = \textrm{F}(\frac{\pi}{2},k) = \int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\frac{d\theta}{\sqrt{1-k^2\sin^2\theta}}
