# [Calculation 9] Simple Corollaries from Gauss and Bailey Formula

Corollary 1. For $\frac{1}{2} < z < 2$, $${}_2 F_1 \left(\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{2};1;1-\frac{1}{z}\right) = \sqrt{z} {}_2 F_1 \left(\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{2};1;1-z\right).$$   Proof. We recall Bailey’s Formula ((i) in [2]) for $w\in\mathbb R$: \tag{1} (1-w)^{-a} {}_2 F_1 \left( a,b;c; – \frac{w}{1-w}\right) … Continue reading

# [Calculation 7] Bailey’s Formulas for Hypergeometric Functions

Theorem. (Bailey) The followings are valid: \begin{align*} &\text{(i) } (1-z)^{-a} {}_2 F_1 \left( a,b;c; – \frac{z}{1-z}\right) = {}_2 F_1 (a,c-b;c;z),\quad|z|<1,\;\text{Re}z< \frac{1}{2},\\ &\text{(ii) } {}_2 F_1 \left( a,b; \frac{a+b+1}{2}; \frac{1}{2}\right) = \frac{\Gamma(\frac{1}{2}) \Gamma(\frac{1+a+b}{2})}{\Gamma(\frac{1+a}{2})\Gamma(\frac{1+b}{2})},\\ &\text{(iii) } {}_2 F_1 \left(a,1-a;c;\frac{1}{2}\right) = \frac{\Gamma(\frac{1}{2}c)\Gamma(\frac{c+1}{2})}{\Gamma(\frac{c+a}{2})\Gamma(\frac{1+c-a}{2})}. \end{align*} … Continue reading
