Hello all!
Recently I wanted to compute a definite integral of f(x)=sqrt(4M^2+ (4Ma/r)*Sin[x]) where x is taken from 0 to 2*Pi. I got a surprising result, with a function I have never seen before (using Mathematica 5.1 version): E(somthing - then vertical line - then something else).
Does anyone know this function and how to understand its variables?
Much obliged,
Gideon
