### Abstract

The complete p-elliptic integrals are generalizations of the complete elliptic integrals by the generalized trigonometric function sin _{p}θ and its half-period π_{p}. It is shown, only for p= 4 , that the generalized p-elliptic integrals yield a computation formula of π_{p} in terms of the arithmetic–geometric mean. This is a π_{p}-version of the celebrated formula of π, independently proved by Brent and Salamin in 1976.
