This paper discusses the numerical solution of first-order initial value problems and a special class of second-order ones (those not containing first derivative). Two classes of methods are discussed, super-implicit and Obrechkoff. We will show equivalence of super-implicit and Obrechkoff schemes. The advantage of Obrechkoff methods is that they are(More)
We present a numerical method to invert a general incomplete elliptic integral with respect to its argument and/or amplitude. The method obtains a solution by bisection accelerated by the half argument formulas and the addition theorems to evaluate the incomplete elliptic integrals and Jacobian elliptic functions required in the course. If a faster(More)
We developed a novel method to calculate an associate complete elliptic integral of the third kind, J(n|m) ≡ [Π (n|m) − K(m)]/n. The key idea is the double argument formula of J(n|m) with respect to n. We derived it from the not-so-popular addition theorem of Jacobi's complete elliptic integral of the third kind, Π 1 (a|m), with respect to a, which is a(More)
We developed an efficient procedure to evaluate two auxiliary complete elliptic integrals of the second kind B(m) and D(m) by using their Taylor series expansions, the definition of Jacobi's nome, and Legendre's relation. The developed procedure is more precise than the existing ones in the sense that the maximum relative errors are 1-3 machine epsilons,(More)
