## expint

As I mentioned here I rewrote expint.m from scratch before the GSoC. During the last week I moved the Lentz algorithm to a .cc function (in order to remain coherent with the implementations of gammainc and betainc) and added few tests.## sinint

The sinint function is present in the symbolic package, but is not present a numerical implementation in the core.The sine integral is defined as $$ \text{Si} (z) = \int_0^z \frac{\sin(t)}{t}\,dt. $$ To compute it we use the series expansion $$ \text{Si}(z) = \sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{(-1)^n z^{2n+1}}{(2n+1)(2n+1)!} $$ when the module of the argument is smaller than 2. For bigger values we use the following relation with the exponential integral $$ \text{Si} = \frac{1}{2i} (E_1(iz)-E_1(-iz)) + \frac{\pi}{2},\quad |\text{arg}(z)| < \frac{\pi}{2}$$ and the following simmetry relations $$ \text{Si}(-z) = -\text{Si}(z), $$ $$ \text{Si}(\bar{z}) = \overline {\text{Si}(z)}. $$ The function is write as a single .m file.

## cosint

As the sinint function, also cosint is present in the symbolic package, but there is not a numerical implementation in the core.The cosine integral is defined as $$ \text{Ci} (z) = -\int_z^\infty \frac{\cos(t)}{t}\,dt. $$ An equivalent definition is $$ \text{Ci} (z) = \gamma + \log z + \int_0^z \frac{\cos t - 1}{t}\,dt. $$ To compute it we use the series expansion $$ \text{Ci}(z) = \gamma + \log z + \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{(-1)^n z^{2n}}{(2n)(2n)!} $$ when the module of the argument is smaller than 2. For bigger values we use the following relation with the exponential integral $$ \text{Ci} = -\frac{1}{2} (E_1(iz)+E_1(-iz)),\quad |\text{arg}(z)| < \frac{\pi}{2}$$ and the following simmetry relations $$ \text{Ci}(-z) = \text{Ci}(z) -i\pi,\quad 0<\text{arg}(z)<\pi, $$ $$ \text{Ci}(\bar{z}) = \overline{\text{Ci}(z)} .$$ As for sinint, also cosint is written as a single .m file.
