LEWIN</p><p>In a recent paper Penunuri introduces the functions</p><p>~ dt and Sii(x) = JO tl/2Cii(x) = ~ t1,2 x Si(t) df</p><p>where Ci(x) and Si(x) are the Fresnel integrals. Since a substan-tial Appendix is denoted to the evaluation of these expressions, itappears that the author may have overlooked a simple deriv-ation, obtained by integration by parts, which expresses themdirectly in terms of the Fresnel integrals. The results are</p><p>Cii(x) =2x1/2C1(x) (2/7)1/2 sm x (1)Sii(x)=2xi12Sl(x) + (2/7r)1i2[cos x 1] (2)</p><p>where, following Penunuri,</p><p>JCi(x) =(1/27r)1i2 ~ dt (3)</p><p>o t/2</p><p>Si(x) = (1/2T)1i2~x~ dt.
