## Abstract:

By evaluating elliptic integrals in terms of standard*R*-functions instead of Legendre’s integrals, many (in one case 144) formulas in previous tables are unified. The present table includes only integrals of the first and second kinds having integrands with real singular points. The 216 integrals of this type listed in Gradshteyn and Ryzhik’s table constitute a small fraction of the special cases of 13 integrals evaluated here. The interval of integration is not required, as it is in previous tables, to begin or end at a singular point of the integrand. Fortran codes for the standard

*R*-functions are included in a Supplement.
