A SUMMATION FORMULA FOR THE SERIES 3F2 DUE TO FOX AND ITS GENERALIZATIONS Choi, Junesang; Rathie, Arjun K.;
Fox  presented an interesting identity for which is expressed in terms of a finite summation of 's whose involved numerator and denominator parameters are different from those in the starting one. Moreover Fox  found a very interesting and general summation formula for as a special case of his above-mentioned general identity with the help of Kummer's second summation theorem for . Here, in this paper, we show how two general summation formulas for , m being a nonnegative integer and i any integer, can be easily established by suitably specializing the above-mentioned Fox's general identity with, here, the aid of generalizations of Kummer's second summation theorem for obtained recently by Rakha and Rathie . Several known results are also seen to be certain special cases of our main identities.
