In addition, the authors obtain several new properties of the Ramanujan type constant $$R(a,b)$$ and the hypergeometric functions. As examples of applications of these results, several quadratic transformation properties of the generalized Grötzsch ring function, which appears in Ramanujan's modular equations, have been obtained. Reviewer: Pierluigi Vellucci (Roma) Branching rules for Koornwinder polynomials with one column diagrams and matrix inversions. https://www.zbmath.org/1455.33010 2021-03-30T15:24:00+00:00 "Hoshino, Ayumu" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:hoshino.ayumu "Shiraishi, Jun'ichi" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:shiraishi.junichi Summary: We present an explicit formula for the transition matrix $$\mathcal{C}$$ from the type $$BC_n$$ Koornwinder polynomials $$P_{(1^r)}(x|a, b, c, d| q, t)$$ with one column diagrams, to the type $$BC_n$$ monomial symmetric polynomials $$m_{(1^r)}(x)$$. The entries of the matrix $$\mathcal{C}$$ enjoy a set of four terms recursion relations. These recursions provide us with the branching rules for the Koornwinder polynomials with one column diagrams, namely the restriction rules from $$BC_n$$ to $$BC_{n-1}$$. To have a good description of the transition matrices involved, we introduce the following degeneration scheme of the Koornwinder polynomials: $$P_{(1^r)}(x|a,b,c,d|q,t) \longleftrightarrow P_{(1^r)}(x |a, -a, c, d| q, t) \longleftrightarrow P_{(1^r)} (x |a, -a, c, -c| q, t) \longleftrightarrow P_{(1^r)} (x |t^{1/2} c, -t^{1/2} c, c, -c| q, t) \longleftrightarrow P_{(1^r)} (x |t^{1/2}, -t^{1/2}, 1, -1| q, t)$$. We prove that the transition matrices associated with each of these degeneration steps are given in terms of the matrix inversion formula of Bressoud. As an application, we give an explicit formula for the Kostka polynomials of type $$B_n$$, namely the transition matrix from the Schur polynomials $$P^{(B_n, B_n)}_{(1^r)} (x |q; q, q)$$ to the Hall-Littlewood polynomials $$P^{(B_n, B_n)}_{(1^r)} (x |t; 0, t)$$. We also present a conjecture for the asymptotically free eigenfunctions of the $$B_n q$$-Toda operator, which can be regarded as a branching formula from the $$B_n q$$-Toda eigenfunction restricted to the $$A_{n-1} q$$-Toda eigenfunctions.

Our main result unifies two theorems from a paper of \textit{P. J. Forrester} and \textit{J. B. Rogers} [SIAM J. Math. Anal. 17, 461--468 (1986; Zbl 0613.33009)]. {\copyright 2020 American Institute of Physics} Evaluation of some non-elementary integrals involving sine, cosine, exponential and logarithmic integrals.

On the other hand, the exponential integral $${Ei}_{\beta,\alpha}=\int (e^{\lambda x^\beta}/x^\alpha) dx, \beta\ge1,\alpha>\beta+1$$ is expressed in terms of $$_2F_2$$. The method used to evaluate these integrals consists of expanding the integrand as a Taylor series and integrating the series term by term. For Part I, see [the author, ibid. 4, No. 1, 24-42 (2018; Zbl 072556474)]. Evaluation of some non-elementary integrals involving sine, cosine, exponential and logarithmic integrals: Part I. https://www.zbmath.org/1455.33016 2021-03-30T15:24:00+00:00 "Nijimbere, Victor" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:nijimbere.victor Summary: The non-elementary integrals $$\text{Si}_{\beta,\alpha}=\int [\sin{(\lambda x^\beta)}/(\lambda x^\alpha)] dx, \beta\ge1,\alpha\le\beta+1$$ and $$\text{Ci}_{\beta,\alpha}=\int [\cos{(\lambda x^\beta)}/(\lambda x^\alpha)] dx, \beta\ge1,\alpha\le2\beta+1$$, where $$\{\beta,\alpha\}\in\mathbb{R}$$, are evaluated in terms of the hypergeometric functions $$_1F_2$$ and $$_2F_3$$, and their asymptotic expressions for $$|x|\gg1$$ are also derived. The integrals of the form $$\int [\sin^n{(\lambda x^\beta)}/(\lambda x^\alpha)] dx$$ and $$\int [\cos^n{(\lambda x^\beta)}/(\lambda x^\alpha)] dx$$, where $$n$$ is a positive integer, are expressed in terms $$\text{Si}_{\beta,\alpha}$$ and $$\text{Ci}_{\beta,\alpha}$$, and then evaluated. $$\text{Si}_{\beta,\alpha}$$ and $$\text{Ci}_{\beta,\alpha}$$ are also evaluated in terms of the hypergeometric function $$_2F_2$$. And so, the hypergeometric functions, $$_1F_2$$ and $$_2F_3$$, are expressed in terms of $$_2F_2$$. The exponential integral $$\text{Ei}_{\beta,\alpha}=\int (e^{\lambda x^\beta}/x^\alpha) dx$$ where $$\beta\ge1$$ and $$\alpha\le\beta+1$$ and the logarithmic integral $$\text{Li}=\int_{\mu}^x dt/\ln{t}, \mu>1$$, are also expressed in terms of $$_2F_2$$, and their asymptotic expressions are investigated. For instance, it is found that for $$x\gg2, \text{Li}\sim{x}/{\ln{x}}+\ln{\left({\ln{x}}/{\ln{2}}\right)}-2- \ln{2}_2F_2(1,1;2,2;\ln{2})$$, where the term $$\ln{\left({\ln{x}}/{\ln{2}}\right)}-2- \ln{2}_2F_2(1,1;2,2;\ln{2})$$ is added to the known expression in mathematical literature $$\text{Li}\sim{x}/{\ln{x}}$$. The method used in this paper consists of expanding the integrand as a Taylor and integrating the series term by term, and can be used to evaluate the other cases which are not considered here. This work is motivated by the applications of sine, cosine exponential and logarithmic integrals in Science and Engineering, and some applications are given.

Asymptotics of some generalized Mathieu series. https://www.zbmath.org/1455.33015 2021-03-30T15:24:00+00:00 "Gerhold, Stefan" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:gerhold.stefan "Hubalek, Friedrich" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:hubalek.friedrich "Tomovski, Živorad" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:tomovski.zivorad Let $$\mu\ge0$$ and $$r>0$$, and fix two series $$\mathbf{a}=(a_n)_{n\ge0}$$, $$\mathbf{b}=(b_n)_{n\ge0}$$. The generalized Mathieu series is defined as $S_{\mathrm{a}, \mathrm{b}, \mu}(r):=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{a_{n}}{\left(b_{n}+r^{2}\right)^{\mu+1}}.$ Moreover, for $$\alpha, \beta, r>0, \mu \geq 0,$$ with $$\alpha-\beta(\mu+1)<-1$$ and $$\gamma, \delta \in \mathbb{R}$$ the series $S_{\alpha, \beta, \gamma, \delta, \mu}(r):=\sum_{n=2}^{\infty} \frac{n^{\alpha}(\log n)^{\gamma}}{\left(n^{\beta}(\log n)^{\delta}+r^{2}\right)^{\mu+1}}$ is defined. Another special case of the generalized Mathieu series is $S_{\alpha, \beta, \mu}^{!}(r):=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{(n !)^{\alpha}}{\left((n !)^{\beta}+r^{2}\right)^{\mu+1}},$ for appropriate parameter choice. The authors then study the asymptotic behavior of these series. Among others, it turns out that $S_{\alpha, \beta, \gamma, \delta, \mu}(r) \sim C_{\alpha, \beta, \gamma, \delta, \mu} r^{2(\alpha+1) / \beta-2(\mu+1)}(\log r)^{-\delta(\alpha+1) / \beta+\gamma}, \quad r \uparrow \infty,$ again, for appropriate parameter choice. Similar asymptotics hold for $$S_{\alpha, \beta, \mu}^{!}(r)$$, too. Here $$C_{\alpha, \beta, \gamma, \delta, \mu}$$ is an expression involving the Gamma function.

Applying the Laguerre calculus established on nilpotent Lie groups of step two in [\textit{D.-C. Chang} et al., The Laguerre calculus on the nilpotent Lie group of step two.'' Preprint, \url{arXiv:1901.06513}], we find the explicit formulas for the heat kernel of sub-Laplace operator and the fundamental solution of power of sub-Laplace operator on nilpotent Lie groups of step two.

Lectures delivered at the international conference New trends in harmonic and complex analysis'', Voss, Norway, May 7--12, 2007. Basel: Birkhäuser. 49--76 (2009; Zbl 1297.53028)] also get the formulas for the heat kernel of sub-Laplace operator on nilpotent Lie groups of step two by using the Hamiltonian and Lagrangian formalisms that are related to geometric mechanics. In this paper, we use a totally different method to prove our main results by using the Laguerre calculus, which is more direct from the point of view of Fourier analysis. Intertwining operators associated with dihedral groups. https://www.zbmath.org/1455.33008 2021-03-30T15:24:00+00:00 "Xu, Yuan" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:xu.yuan.1|xu.yuan The Fourier analysis associated with reflection groups has attracted considerable attention. The purpose of this paper is to study intertwining operators associated with dihedral groups. The main result gives an integral representation for the intertwining operator on a class of functions. As an application, a closed form formula for the Poisson kernel of the $$h$$-harmonics associated with the dihedral group $$I_ k$$ is obtained. For one-parameter, the Poisson kernel can be expressed as a hypergeometric function. The dihedral groups $$I_{2k}$$ and $$I_{2k+1}$$ with positive root systems are considered separately and corresponding Dunkl operators are computed. The generalized Gegenbauer polynomials can be expressed in terms of Jacobi polynomials, which leads to formulas for the $$h$$-harmonics. Finally, an explicit basis of orthogonal polynomials or sieved Gegenbauer polynomials can be derived.

We establish a formula for this Dirichlet density and conjecture that it is rare for the density to be large. We provide evidence for this conjecture for hypergeometric series $$_2F_1(x/p,y/p;z/p)$$, with $$p$$ a prime of the form $$p\equiv 3\pmod{4}$$, by establishing an upper bound on the density of bounded primes in this case.

Furthermore, sharp symmetrical bounds for the arithmetic-geometric mean and a new symmetric mean $$E(a, b)$$ are found. Observe that unusual notations for the complete elliptic integrals of the first and second kind are used, and the modulus $$k$$ is denoted by $$r$$. The proofs use L'hospital rule and several tedious computations involving the area tangens hyperbolicus function, which sometimes are not shown.

What these research fields share is that many of their outstanding results do not only have applications in Mathematics, but also other disciplines, such as computer science, physics, chemistry, etc. A particular charm of these areas is how they interact and influence one another. For instance, combinatorial or special functions' techniques have motivated the development of new symbolic algorithms. In particular, first proofs of challenging problems in combinatorics and special functions were derived by making essential use of computer algebra. This book addresses these interdisciplinary aspects. Algorithmic aspects are emphasized and the corresponding software packages for concrete problem solving are introduced. Readers will range from graduate students, researchers to practitioners who are interested in solving concrete problems within mathematics and other research disciplines. The articles of this volume will be reviewed individually.

Recurrence relations for Mellin transforms of $$G L(n, \mathbb{R})$$ Whittaker functions. https://www.zbmath.org/1455.33007 2021-03-30T15:24:00+00:00 "Stade, Eric" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:stade.eric "Trinh, Tien" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:trinh.tien Summary: Using a recursive formula for the Mellin transform $$T_{n , a}(s)$$ of a spherical, principal series $$G L(n, \mathbb{R})$$ Whittaker function, we develop an explicit recurrence relation for this Mellin transform. This relation, for any $$n \geq 2$$, expresses $$T_{n , a}(s)$$ in terms of a number of shifted'' transforms $$T_{n , a}(s + \Sigma)$$, with each coordinate of $$\Sigma$$ being a non-negative integer. We then focus on the case $$n = 4$$. In this case, we use the relation referenced above to derive further relations, each of which involves strictly positive shifts'' in one of the coordinates of $$s$$. More specifically: each of our new relations expresses $$T_{4 , a}(s)$$ in terms of $$T_{4 , a}(s + \Sigma)$$ and $$T_{4 , a}(s + \Omega)$$, where for some $$1 \leq k \leq 3$$, the $$k$$ th coordinates of both $$\Sigma$$ and $$\Omega$$ are strictly positive. Next, we deduce a recurrence relation for $$T_{4 , a}(s)$$ involving strictly positive shifts in all three $$s_k$$'s at once. (That is, the condition for some $$1 \leq k \leq 3$$'' above becomes for all $$1 \leq k \leq 3$$.'') These additional relations on $$G L(4, \mathbb{R})$$ may be applied to the explicit understanding of certain poles and residues of $$T_{4 , a}(s)$$. This residue information is, as we describe below, in turn relevant to recent results concerning orthogonality of Fourier coefficients of $$S L(4, \mathbb{Z})$$ Maass forms, and the $$G L(4)$$ Kuznetsov formula.

R." https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:eslahchi.mohammad-reza "Abedzadeh, A." https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:abedzadeh.a Summary: The aim of this paper is to introduce two new extensions of the Jacobi and Laguerre polynomials as the eigenfunctions of two nonclassical Sturm-Liouville problems. We prove some important properties of these operators such as: These sets of functions are orthogonal with respect to a positive definite inner product defined over the compact intervals $$[-1, 1]$$ and $$[0,\infty)$$, respectively and also these sequences form two new orthogonal bases for the corresponding Hilbert spaces. Finally, the spectral and Rayleigh-Ritz methods are carry out using these basis functions to solve some examples. Our numerical results are compared with other existing results to confirm the efficiency and accuracy of our method. On a lattice generalisation of the logarithm and a deformation of the Dedekind eta function. https://www.zbmath.org/1455.11070 2021-03-30T15:24:00+00:00 "Bétermin, Laurent" https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:betermin.laurent The author considers a deformationm the Gannon's deformation of the Dedekind eta function which is related to the two $d$-dimensional simple lattices and two parameters $(m;t)$ where $m$ and $t$ are positive real numbers. The author proves that the minimisers of the lattice theta function are the maximisers of the Gannon's deformation of the Dedekind eta function in the space of lattices with fixed density. The proof is based on the study of a lattice generalisation of the logarithm, called the lattice logarithm, also defined by \textit{T. Gannon} [in: Symmetry in physics. In memory of Robert T. Sharp. Proceedings of the workshop symmetries in physics, Montréal, Canada, September 12--14, 2002. Providence, RI: American Mathematical Society (AMS). 55--66 (2004; Zbl 1087.11025)]. The author also shows that the natural logarithm is characterised by a variational problem over a class of one-dimensional lattice logarithms. The author studies the maximisation of $L 7\to\log L(x)$ for given $x\in (0,1)$ as well as the problem of maximising a lattice energy of type the Gannon's deformation of the Dedekind eta function. In dimension $d=1$, the author shows that the natural logarithm is characterized by a maximality problem. This result allows us to construct functions, in a canonical way, that are smaller and close to $\log(x)$. The author gives many theorems and formulas on deformation of the Dedekind eta function and also lattice generalization of the logarithm.

We give conditions on the free parameter of both factorizations in terms of certain continued fractions such that this stochastic factorization is always possible. By inverting the order of the factors (also known as a Darboux transformation) we get new families of random walks on the integers. We identify the spectral matrices associated with these Darboux transformations (in both cases) which are basically conjugations by a matrix polynomial of degree one of a Geronimus transformation of the original spectral matrix. Finally, we apply our results to the random walk with constant transition probabilities with or without an attractive or repulsive force.

The last circumstance makes it impossible to apply known in the theory of transcendental numbers Siegel's method for carrying out the above mentioned investigation. The application of this method implies usage of pigeon-hole principle for the construction of a functional linear approximating form. This construction is the first step in a long and complicated reasoning that leads ultimately to the required arithmetic result. The attempts to apply pigeon-hole principle in case of functions with irrational parameters encounters insurmountable obstacles because of the aforementioned fast growth of the least common denominator of the coefficients of the corresponding Taylor series. Owing to this difficulty one usually applies effective construction of the linear approximating form (or a system of such forms in case of simultaneous approximations) for the functions with irrational parameters. The effectively constructed form contains polynomials with algebraic coefficients and it is necessary for further reasoning to obtain a satisfactory upper estimate of the modulus of the least common denominator of these coefficients. The known estimates of this type should be in some cases improved. This improvement is carried out by means of the theory of divisibility in quadratic fields. Some facts concerning the distribution of the prime numbers in arithmetic progression are also made use of. In the present paper we consider one of the versions of effective construction of the simultaneous approximations for the hypergeometric function of the general type and its derivatives. The least common denominator of the coefficients of the polynomials included in these approximations is estimated subsequently by means of the improved variant of the corresponding lemma. All this makes it possible to obtain a new result concerning the arithmetic values of the aforesaid function at a nonzero point of small modulus from some imaginary quadratic field.

The corresponding inverse function $$F_{p,q}^{-1}:[0,\frac{\pi_{p,q}}{2}]\to[0,1]$$ is the generalized $$(p,q)$$-sine function, denoted by $$\sin_{p,q}$$. For $$r\in[0,1)$$, let ${\mathcal K}_{p,q}(r):=\int_{0}^{\pi_{p,q}/2}(1-r^q\sin_{p,q}^{q}t)^{1/p-1}{\operatorname d}t$ be the complete $$(p,q)$$-elliptic integral of the first kind, which is a generalization of the classical elliptic integral of the first kind, ${\mathcal K}(r):=\int_{0}^{\pi/2}\frac{{\operatorname d}t}{\sqrt{1-r^2\sin^2t}},$ where $$p=q=2$$.

Ramanujan} [The Lost Notebook and other unpublished papers. With an introduction by George E. Andrews. New Delhi: Narosa Publishing House; Berlin (FRG): Springer-Verlag (1988; Zbl 0639.01023)] in its page no. 2 [Entries 1.1 and 1.2] and page no. 17 [Entries 1.3 and 1.4]. However, these identities were first proved by \textit{H. Yesilyurt} [Adv. Math. 190, No. 2, 278--299 (2005; Zbl 1106.11013)] with the help of a famous lemma given by [\textit{A. O. L. Atkin} and \textit{P. Swinnerton-Dyer}, Proc. Lond. Math. Soc. (3) 4, 84--106 (1954; Zbl 0055.03805)]. Please note that the third order mock theta functions are intimately connected with ranks of partitions. The proofs of Entries 1.1-1.3 are not difficult but the proof of Entry 1.4 is considerably more difficult, which is based upon a 2-dissection for two special cases of the rank generating function $$G(z,q)$$, when $$z=i$$ and $$z$$ is a primitive eight root of unity. These 2-dissections of the rank, with their immediate consequences, comprise a second major focus of this paper. The complete proof of Entry 1.4 is given in four parts which are spread within sixteen pages. Some immediate consequences of the results on the 2-dissection of the rank function $$G(i,q)$$ and a primitive eight root of unity related to ranks and mock theta functions are also discussed. The proofs are nicely presented and clearly understandable. Reviewer: M. P.

We obtain sharp pointwise estimates for the corresponding Cesàro kernels, which were previously known when all parameters are nonnegative. We settle the problem for the case when $$\min_{1 \leq j \leq d} \kappa_j < 0$$. Our estimates allow us to establish sharp results on Cesàro summability with less restriction on the parameters.

L." https://www.zbmath.org/authors/?q=ai:ivankov.pavel-leonidovich Summary: Generalized hypergeometric function is defined as a sum of the power series whose coefficients are the products of the values of some fractional rational function. Taken with a minus sign roots of a numerator and denominator of this rational function are called parameters of the corresponding hypergeometric function. For the investigation of the arithmetic nature of the values of hypergeometric functions and their derivatives (including derivatives with respect to parameter) one often makes use of Siegel's method. The corresponding reasoning begins as a rule by the construction of the functional linear approximating form. If parameters of the hypergeometric function are rational one is able to use pigeonhole principle for the construction of this form. In addition the construction is feasible not only for the hypergeometric functions themselves but also for the products of their powers. By this is explained the generality of results obtained by such method. But if there are irrational numbers among the parameters the application of a pigeonhole method is impossible and for carrying out the corresponding investigation it is necessary to employ some additional considerations. One of the methods of surmounting the difficulty connected with the irrationality of some parameters of a hypergeometric function consists in the application of the effective construction of the linear approximating form from which the reasoning begins. Primarily effective constructions of such approximations appeared for the functions of a special kind (the numerator of the rational function by means of which the coefficients of hypergeometric functions are defined was to be equal to unity). The investigation of the properties of these approximations revealed the fact that they can be useful in case of rational parameters as well for the quantitative results obtained by effective methods turned out to be more precise than their analogs obtained by Siegel's method. Subsequently the methods of effective construction of linear approximating forms were generalized in diverse directions. In this paper we propose a new effective construction of approximating form in case when for the hypergeometric functions derivatives with respect to parameter are also considered. This construction is made use of for the sharpening of the lower estimates of the linear independence measure of the values of corresponding functions.

The main result of this work is to provide explicit bases for their morphism spaces (see Theorems 1 and 2). This is proved in two steps. The first one consists in showing that the given sets span the corresponding morphism spaces, by a topological argument (see Proposition 11 and 12). Secondly, they prove that the previous sets are linearly independent (see Sections 4.10 and 4.11).

It is an analogue of the Weierstrass sigma function $$\sigma({{u}};g_2,g_3)$$ of a family of elliptic curves. Logarithmic derivatives of order $$2$$ and higher of the function $${\sigma({\mathbf{u}};\lambda)}$$ generate fields of hyperelliptic functions of $${\mathbf{u}} = (u_1,u_3)$$ on the Jacobians of curves with a fixed parameter vector $$\lambda$$. We consider three Hurwitz series $$\sigma({\mathbf{u}};\lambda)=\sum_{m,n\ge0}a_{m,n}(\lambda)\frac{u_1^mu_3^n}{m!n!}, \sigma({\mathbf{u}};\lambda) = \sum_{k\ge 0}\xi_k(u_1;\lambda)\frac{u_3^k}{k!}$$ and $$\sigma({\mathbf{u}};\lambda) = \sum_{k\ge 0}\mu_k(u_3;\lambda)\frac{u_1^k}{k!}$$. The survey is devoted to the number-theoretic properties of the functions $$a_{m,n}(\lambda), \xi_k(u_1;\lambda)$$ and $$\mu_k(u_3;\lambda)$$. It includes the latest results, which proofs use the fundamental fact that the function $${\sigma ({\mathbf{u}};\lambda)}$$ is determined by the system of four heat equations in a nonholonomic frame of six-dimensional space.
