Integrals of Rational Functions of Jacobi Elliptic Functions

Note that this post will be continuously updated as results are required for evaluating other integrals.

We use results from the relationships among squares of Jacobi elliptic functions.

Also, we use the numbering scheme of Handbook of Elliptic Integrals for Engineers and Scientists by Byrd and Friedman.

We begin with the definition of the incomplete elliptic integral of the third kind
\begin{equation}
\Pi(\phi,\alpha^{2},k) = \int \frac{du}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}(u,k)}
\end{equation}

and
\begin{equation}
\int du = u
\end{equation}
which we note here as we drop the differential and dependent variables in the work below.

BF 337.01

We begin with
\begin{align}
\int \frac{\alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} &= \int \frac{1 \,-\, 1 + \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} \\
&= \int \frac{1}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} \,-\, \int \frac{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} = \Pi \,-\, u
\end{align}
Rearranging yields
\begin{equation}
\int \frac{\mathrm{sn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} = \frac{\Pi \,-\, u}{\alpha^{2}}
\end{equation}

BF 338.01

\begin{align}
\int \frac{\mathrm{cn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} &= \int \frac{1}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} \,-\, \int \frac{\mathrm{sn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} \\
&= \Pi \,-\, \frac{\Pi \,-\, u}{\alpha^{2}} = \frac{1}{\alpha^{2}}\left[(\alpha^{2} \,-\, 1)\Pi + u \right]
\end{align}

BF 339.01

\begin{align}
\int \frac{\mathrm{dn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} &= \int \frac{1 \,-\, k^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}}{1 \,-\, \alpha^{2}\mathrm{sn}^{2}} \\
&= \Pi \,-\, \frac{k^{2}}{\alpha^{2}}(\Pi \,-\, u) = \frac{1}{\alpha^{2}}\left[(\alpha^{2} \,-\, k^{2})\Pi + k^{2}u \right]
\end{align}
