### Fundamental period of the WeierstrassP elliptic function?

Consider the WeierstrassP elliptic function $\wp(z, g_2, g_3)$ with the invariants $g_2\in\mathbb{R}$ and $g_3\in\mathbb{R}$: $$\wp'(z)^2 = 4\wp(z)^3 - g_2 \wp(z) - g_3$$ According to Wikipedia when ...

### Closed form integral $\int_b^c \frac{x^2}{\sqrt{(x-a)(x-b)(c-x)(d-x)}} dx$

Is there a closed form expression for the definite integral $$I=\int_b^c \frac{x^2}{\sqrt{(x-a)(x-b)(c-x)(d-x)}} dx$$ for $a<b<c<d$? Mathematica 9.0 can do it for special cases using ...
