```The JacobiAmplitude[x,k], JacobiSN[x,k] and related functions are
defined in Mathematica by what is not the normal use of the modulus k

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/JacobiEllipticFunctions.html

Generally ist seems to be the case

cn(x,k) = JacobiCN[x,k^2]

and so on.

E.g the Talor series is

Series[JacobiSN[x, k^2], {x, 0, 5}] ->

SeriesData[x, 0, {1, 0, -1/6 - k^2/6, 0,
1/120 + (7*k^2)/60 + k^4/120}, 1, 6, 1]

and the ODE for sn

sn'^2 =(1-sn^2)(1-k^2 sn^2)

which is now

D[JacobiSN[x, k], x]^2 /.
{JacobiCN[x, k]^2 -> 1 - JacobiSN[x, k]^2,
JacobiDN[x, k]^2 -> 1 - k*JacobiSN[x, k]^2}

results in

(1 - JacobiSN[x, k]^2)*(1 - k*JacobiSN[x, k]^2)

Does anybody know if this is a feature or a mistake? I don't find any
literature using the Mathematica convention.
