On a Generalization of Kummer’s Second-Type and
The aim of this paper is to establish a general form of Kummer’s second-type summation theory. By defining a new form for the divided of the Pochhammer symbol , we can develop a general form of Kummer’s second-type summation theorem as in the form of a sum of for Then, some properties of the generalized Kummer’s second-type summation theorem can yield a number of known and novel results.
Transformation and summation formulas have a significant part in a several applications in the field of hypergeometric functions. The theorems of classical summation such as those introduced by Kummer, Gauss, Gauss second and Bailey, and also Whipple, Watson, and Dixon for the hypergeometric functions have known to be useful in wide range of applications. One of the key roles of the hypergeometric and generalized hypergeometric functions is consideration of the formulas in terms of Gamma function, where it become more elegant for application fit. Recently, hypergeometric functions have been used in several applications, such as mathematics and statistics, and now, it plays an important role in the field of physics such as the solution of some kinds of wave equations considered as special cases of hypergeometric function [1, 2]. Also, in quantum mechanics, we can express the solution of the two-body Coulomb problem in terms of hypergeometric functions . A M Ishkhanyan et al. derived fifteen classes of solutions of the quantum two-state problem, and these classes extend over models solvable in terms of the hypergeometric and the confluent hypergeometric functions .
It is also commonly used in computer commercial software such as Matlab and Mathematica. Moreover, a plenty of engineering applications are based on hypergeometric function in the fields of communications especially wireless communications [5–7].
The main goal of this work is to propose a general form of Kummer’s second-type summation, and we obtained the type II Kummer transform for the generalized hypergeometric functions and , which is discussed in Sections 2 and Sections 3. We also look at some interesting special cases and the implications of our main findings.
In the world of standard functions, the hypergeometric functions take a dominant position in mathematics, both pure and applied. Euler was introduced as a series of power expansions in the formsuch that the parameters are rational.
In 1812, Gauss introduced the generalized hypergeometric functions with numerator and denominator are parameters in the form where denotes Pochhammer’s symbol (or the shifted or raised factorial, since ) defined by
By using the Gamma function property , then is given in the formwhere is the standard Gamma function.
Summation and transformation formulas play an important role in the theory of hypergeometric and generalized hypergeometric series. For example, in Kummer’s first-type and second transformations, we start with the following Kummer first type [9–12], for the series and , viz.:where
Prudnikov  expressed in terms of two functions in the form
Also, from the theory of differential equations, Kummer  established the following highly important and very known result in the literature as Kummer’s second theorem:
Motivated by the extension of Kummer type I transformation (6) obtained by Paris , Rathie and Pogany  derived summation formula for and then applied it to establish a Kummer type II transformation for the series in the following form:
Recently, Rakha et al.  have derived another extension of Kummer second theorem as follows:where and is computed by
Rakha and Rathie  introduced an explicit expression of Kummer type II transformation in the formwhere
In this study, we aim to establish a new extension of Kummer type II transformation in the form in the form of a sum of for
