Jacobi Elliptic Functions and Integrals

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Are there any useful references or resources that intuitively show how Jacobi Elliptic functions [sn, cn, dn, etc] are geometrically interpreted from properties of ellipses? And how the Jacobi Elliptic functions and integrals can be shown to be generalizations of circular trig functions? Thanks!

The first place I always look for info on special functions is the Digital Library of Mathematical Functions
https://dlmf.nist.gov/
It might not have everything you are looking for, but it does have some of it. Have you looked there?
