Elliptic_integral_rc

Definition:

$rc = elliptic\_integral\_rc(x,y)$ calculates an approximate value for the integral

$R_c(x,y)=\frac 12\int_0^\infty \frac{dt}{\sqrt{t+x}(t+y)}$

where x ≥ 0 and y ≠ 0.

This function, which is related to the logarithm or inverse hyperbolic functions for y < x and to inverse circular functions if x < y, arises as a degenerate form of the elliptic integral of the first kind. If y < 0, the result computed is the Cauchy principal value of the integral.

An approximate value of the integral $R_c(x,y)=\frac 12\int_0^\infty \frac{dt}{\sqrt{t+x}(t+y)}$
