exponential functions

Expint functions as per the Gnu Scientific Library, reference manual section 7.17 and AMS-55, chapter 5. These functions are declared in header file gsl_sf_expint.h.

Keywords
array
Usage
expint_E1(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
expint_E2(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
expint_En(n, x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
expint_Ei(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
Shi(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
Chi(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
expint_3(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
Si(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
Ci(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
atanint(x, give=FALSE, strict=TRUE)
Arguments
x

input: real values

n

input: integer values

give

Boolean with TRUE meaning to return a list of three items: the value, an estimate of the error, and a status number

strict

Boolean, with TRUE meaning to return NaN if status is an error

Note

Function expint_En() requires GSL version 1.8 or later.
