I'm trying to computer plot the graphs of sn(u), cn(u) and dn(u) for k = 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 0.9 and 0.99

And I am trying to plot 3D graphs of sn, cn and dn as functions of u and k.

Here's what I have:

for k = 1/2: Plot[{JacobiSN[x, .52], Sin [x]}, {x, 0, 2Pi}, PlotStyle -+ {Dashing [{O.OS, O.OS}], Dashing [{0.01, O.Ol}]}]

Can someone help generate the other graphs and provide syntax? Thanks!

Is this a math question, or a programming question? If it';s the latter, it may be more suitable for the programming site. – Gerry Myerson Jan 21 '13 at 5:05
It is both, but I thought to put it here since nobody I realize goes to the programming site to help – Buddy Holly Jan 23 '13 at 10:18
Well, it doesn't look like anyone is coming here to help, but, suit yourself. – Gerry Myerson Jan 23 '13 at 12:05
You ask about syntax, but you also neglect to mention what language/environment you're using. Oi... – J. M. Mar 23 '13 at 16:20
