zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).
la: chinese Find documents in a given language. ISO 639-1 language codes can also be used.

Bailey’s transform, lemma, chains and tree. (English) Zbl 1005.33005
Bustoz, Joaquin (ed.) et al., Special functions 2000: current perspective and future directions. Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute, Tempe, AZ, USA, May 29-June 9, 2000. Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers. NATO Sci. Ser. II, Math. Phys. Chem. 30, 1-22 (2001).
This is an overview of Bailey chains, an important tool in the discovery and proof of q-series identities. The author gives examples of one- and multi-dimensional Bailey chains as well as a recent variation he calls the WP-Bailey chain because it is based on Bailey’s proof of an identity between two very well-poised basic hypergeometric series.
