Is it possible to use this code to have the same output as this function gives in Mathmatica?

q = 0.0419;
V2 = EllipticTheta[2, 0, q]
V3 = EllipticTheta[3, 0, q]


V2= 0.906453
V3= 1.08381

I am sorry to report the following bug in your Matlab functions. I use Matlab2013b and I find that the error message jumps out:

Error using .*
Matrix dimensions must agree.

Error in ellipj (line 95)
phin(:) = (2 .^ double(n(K))).*a(i,K).*u(I);

Error in ellipji (line 76)
[s,c,d] = ellipj(phi,m,tol);

But there is no bug when I use Matlab2010a. That is very strange.

@Ali Afruzi: you should try the ELLIPTIC123,

I'm trying to find Elliptic Integral of the third kind for elliptic3(phi, m, c); that "c" is not between 0 to 1; but this m-file sending an error. This error appear while the c or n can be between -inf to +inf.

Very useful and well written. Thanks.

I needed to use incomplete elliptic integrals for the solving of a stress analysis problem.

I tried the equations using this file ("Elliptic Integrals of three types and Jacobian Elliptic Functions") and "" by Thomas Hoffend.

Of the two, this one achieved answers closer to the table of pre-defined values.

I will mention however that the elliptic integral was only part of the solving method and I don't know whether elliptic12 was better just for my problem, but for an end answer of 0.174, elliptic12 as part of my coding gave me 0.1756, where as lelipke and lelipkf gave me 0.2022.
