Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2207)


In this chapter we deduce several results for Kapteyn series of Bessel and Kummer hypergeometric functions. We present some integral representations and results on coefficients by using the Euler-Maclaurin summation technique and the differential equation technique.
