Introduction to to elliptic exp and elliptic log

General

The elliptic exp and elliptic log appeared in the article of D. Masser (1975). These functions and the derivative of elliptic exp were implemented in the technical computing software Mathematica as part of the implementation of numerous mathematical functions that were used for elliptic and number theory functions.

Definitions of the elliptic exp and elliptic log

The elliptic exponent , its derivative , and the elliptic logarithm are defined by the following formulas:

A quick look at the elliptic exp and elliptic log

Here is a quick look at the two components of the elliptic exponent and its derivative. All of the following graphics use the parameters . The double periodicity of the function and the poles of order 2 to 4 are clearly visible.

The last pair of graphics shows the elliptic logarithm over the complex ‐plane. Compared with the direct function, it is relatively structureless.
