I had been slowly going through some OEIS entries in an attempt to add or optimize the Mathematica code found there. One thing that struck me with respect to the sequences that are related to the elliptic integrals/elliptic functions was that they were often left in the form that was spit out by a CAS. I had railed about the deficiencies of current software for generating simple expressions for elliptic integrals many times before, so this was but a confluence with the fact that not many people these days have experience in the analytical manipulation of these functions, as classical and important as they are.

I certainly have my work cut out for me…

Hello Jan, how may I get in contact with you to ask permission to use a figure from mathematica stack exchange? Can I ask it here on this blog?
