A Bilateral Series Involving Basic Hypergeometric Functions

  • Hjalmar Rosengren
Part of the Developments in Mathematics book series (DEVM, volume 13)


We prove a summation formula for a bilateral series whose terms are products of two basic hypergeometric functions. In special cases, series of this type arise as matrix elements of quantum group representations.
