COMMENTS

The logarithmic integral function li(z) has a cut along the negative real axis which causes therein a discontinuity in the imaginary part of li(z). However, the absolute value of the imaginary part is continuous and its value is a well behaved function of any real argument, excepting z=+1. The above value corresponds to |imag(li(z))| at z=-1, the point where the corresponding real part (A257819) attains its maximum within the real interval (-infinity,+1).
