 This book contains a systematic presentation of the theory of elliptic functions and some of its applications. A translation from the Russian, this book is intended primarily for engineers who work with elliptic functions. It should be accessible to those with background in the elements of mathematical analysis and the theory of functions contained in approximately the first two years of mathematics and physics courses at the college level. Table of Contents  General theorems about elliptic functions
 Modular functions;
 The Weierstrass functions
 Theta functions
 The Jacobi functions
 Transformation of elliptic functions
 Additional facts about elliptic integrals
 Some conformal mappings
 Extremal properties of fractions to which a transformation of elliptic functions reduces
 Generalization of Tchebycheff polynomials
 Various supplements and applications
