HYPERGEOMETRIC MODULAR EQUATIONS

  • SHAUN COOPER (a1) and WADIM ZUDILIN (a2) (a3)

Abstract

We record $\binom{42}{2}+\binom{23}{2}+\binom{13}{2}=1192$ functional identities that, apart from being amazingly amusing in themselves, find application in the derivation of Ramanujan-type formulas for $1/\unicode[STIX]{x1D70B}$ and in the computation of mathematical constants.
