Weierstrassian elliptic function

Weierstrassian elliptic function

[¦vī·ər¦shträs·ē·ən i′lip·tik ′fəŋk·shən]
(mathematics)
A function that plays a central role in the theory of elliptic functions; for z, g2 and g3 real or complex numbers, let y be that number such that the Weierstrassian elliptic function of z with parameters g2 and g3 is p (z; g2, g3) = y.

The Weierstrassian elliptic function is traditionally denoted by the Icelandic "p," p, suggesting that this function is doubly periodic (periodisch in German).
