Inspired by certain fascinating ongoing extensions of the special functions such as an extension of the Pochhammer symbol and generalized hypergeometric function, we present a new extension of the generalized Mittag-Leffler (ML) function in terms of the generalized Pochhammer symbol. We then deliberately find certain various properties and integral transformations of the said function . Some particular cases and outcomes of the main results are also established.

1. Introduction

The well-known ML (Mittag-Leffler) function with one parameter is defined by

The generalization of (1) with two parameters defined by was presented and contemplated by Mittag-Leffler [17] and other researchers. In [8], the generalization of (1) was given by

Shukla and Prajapati [9] defined the following generalization of the ML function by

Rahman et al. [10] defined the following extension of generalized ML function by where , and Bp(x,y) is the extension of beta function (see [11]).

Moreover, the generalization of ML function (3) was presented by [12] as follows: where is the Pochhammer symbol which is defined as

The researchers studied these extensions (6) and (7) and investigated their further extensions and associated properties and applications. (The readers may consult [1316].) Recently, Srivastava et al. [17] have presented and concentrated in a fairly productive way the following extension of the generalized hypergeometric function: where for , for , and , and where is the extension of the generalized Pochhammer symbol defined by [23]:

The integral representation of is explained by where is the modified Bessel function of order . Clearly, when in (10), at that point, by utilizing the way that , it will lead to formula [(31)]:

Specifically, the relating extensions of the confluent hypergeometric function and the Gauss hypergeometric function are given by

The extension of generalized hypergeometric function of numerator and denominator parameters was investigated by [18]. Recently, the researchers defined various extensions of special functions and their associated properties and applications in the diverse field. (The interested readers may consult [1922].) In [2325], the authors introduced an extension of fractional derivative operators based on the extended beta functions.

Next, motivated by the above such extensions of special functions, we define an extension of ML function (6) in terms of the generalized Pochhammer symbol (9) and investigate its certain variations.
