7.13.2 Definition of Carlson Forms

The Carlson symmetric forms of elliptical integrals RC(x,y), RD(x,y,z), RF(x,y,z) and RJ(x,y,z,p) are defined by,

    RC(x,y) = 1/2 \int_0^\infty dt (t+x)^(-1/2) (t+y)^(-1)

  RD(x,y,z) = 3/2 \int_0^\infty dt (t+x)^(-1/2) (t+y)^(-1/2) (t+z)^(-3/2)

  RF(x,y,z) = 1/2 \int_0^\infty dt (t+x)^(-1/2) (t+y)^(-1/2) (t+z)^(-1/2)

RJ(x,y,z,p) = 3/2 \int_0^\infty dt 
                 (t+x)^(-1/2) (t+y)^(-1/2) (t+z)^(-1/2) (t+p)^(-1)
