Integral representation of the four-parametric generalized Mittag-Leffler function



In this paper, we give a new integral representation of the four-parametric generalized Mittag-Leffler function introduced and studied by Djrbashian (Dzherbashian). The representation, obtained in this paper, contains an iterated integral, wherein the internal integral is a Cauchy-type integral, and the external one is a simple improper integral along the so-called Hankel path. The representation also contains the values of the special Wright functions.
