In describing these transformations, we limit ourselves to elliptic integrals of the first kind, and must refer to the literature for the others. An early treatment of computational algorithms for elliptic functions and integrals i s King [1924]. We follow more c l o s e l y the work of Carlson [1965], who develops the algorithms in a unified way, at least for integrals of the first two kinds. Hof sommer and van de Riet [1963] have ALGOL programs for integrals of the first and second kind, using Landen transformations, as well as programs for elliptic functions, based on ascending Landen and descending Gauss transformations.
