GENERALIZATIONS OF GAUSS'S SECOND SUMMATION THEOREM AND BAILEY'S FORMULA FOR THE SERIES 2F1(1/2) Rathie, Arjun K.; Kim, Yong-Sup; Choi, June-Sang;
We aim mainly at presenting two generalizations of the well-known Gauss's second summation theorem and Bailey's formula for the series . An interesting transformation formula for is obtained by combining our two main results. Relevant connections of some special cases of our main results with those given here or elsewhere are also pointed out.
