Abstract: We consider the evaluation of a recent generalization of the Epstein-Hubbell elliptic-type integral using the tau method approximation with a Chebyshev polynomial basis. This also leads to an approximation of Lauricella's hypergeometric function of three variables. Numerical results are given for polynomial approximations of degree 6.
