Abstract: We consider the incomplete hyperelliptic integral

$\displaystyle H(a,X) = \int_0^X {\frac{{dx}}{{\sqrt {a - {\lambda _2}{x^2} - {\lambda _n}{x^n}} }}} $

with $ a > 0$, $ {\lambda _2} > 0$, $ n > 2$, where X belongs to the connected component of $ \{ x\vert{\lambda _2}{x^2} + {\lambda _n}{x^n} < a\} $ containing the origin.

Continuing previous work on the complete hyperelliptic integral, we express in this paper $ H(a,X)$ as a convergent series of hypergeometric type. A brief survey of some applications to algebraic equations and mechanics is then given.
