This function evaluates the Jacobi Zeta Function Z(φ, k)
The return type of this function is computed using the __arg_pomotion_rules when the arguments are of different types: when they are the same type then the result is the same type as the arguments.
Requires 1 <= k <= 1, otherwise returns the result of domain_error (outside this range the result would be complex).
The final Policy argument is optional and can be used to control the behaviour of the function: how it handles errors, what level of precision to use etc. Refer to the policy documentation for more details.
Note that there is no complete analogue of this function (where φ = π / 2) as this takes the value 0 for all k.
These functions are trivially computed in terms of other elliptic integrals and generally have very low error rates (a few epsilon) unless parameter φ is very large, in which case the usual trigonometric function argumentreduction issues apply.

The tests use a mixture of spot test values calculated using values calculated at wolframalpha.com, and random test data generated using MPFR at 1000bit precision and a deliberately naive implementation in terms of the Legendre integrals.
The implementation for Z(φ, k) first makes the argument φ positive using:
Z(φ, k) = Z(φ, k)
The function is then implemented in terms of Carlson's integral R_{J} using the relation:
There is one special case where the above relation fails: when k = 1, in that case the function simplifies to
Z(φ, 1) = sign(cos(φ)) sin(φ)
