Full-text: Open access

Abstract

The arithmetic--geometric mean algorithm for calculating elliptic integrals of the first type was introduced by Gauss. The analogous algorithm for abelian integrals of genus $2$ was introduced by Richelot (1837) and Humbert (1901). We present the analogous algorithm for abelian integrals of genus 3.
