Abstract: As many as 72 elliptic integrals of the third kind in previous tables are unified by evaluation in terms of R-functions instead of Legendre's integrals. The present table includes only integrals having integrands with real singular points. In addition to 31 integrals of the third kind, most of them unavailable elsewhere, 10 integrals of the first and second kinds from an earlier table are listed again in new notation. In contrast to conventional tables, the interval of integration is not required to begin or end at a singular point of the integrand. Fortran codes for the standard R-functions $ {R_C}$ and $ {R_J}$, revised to include their Cauchy principal values, are listed in a Supplement.
