# Mathematics (plasmapy.mathematics)¶

This module gathers highly theoretical mathematical formulas relevant to plasma physics. Usually, those are used somewhere else in the code but were deemed general enough for the mathematical apparatus to be abstracted from the main function interface.

## Functions¶

 Fermi_integral(x, int, complex, …) Calculate the complete Fermi-Dirac integral. plasma_dispersion_func(zeta, int, float, …) Calculate the plasma dispersion function. plasma_dispersion_func_deriv(zeta, int, …) Calculate the derivative of the plasma dispersion function.
