A generalization of the Hurwitz-Lerch zeta function. (English) Zbl 1145.11068

The generalization in the title is defined as the analytic continuation of the series

Φ n (z,s,a)= m 1 ,,m n =0 z m 1 ++m n (m 1 ++m n +a) s ,

with appropriate restrictions on z, s, a. The case z=1 was considered by E. W. Barnes in [Cambr. Trans. 19, 374–425 (1904; JFM 35.0462.01) and ibid. 19, 322–355 (1904; JFM 35.0462.02)]. Integral representations are obtained, together with a basic summation formula that expresses Φ n (z,s,a-t) as a power series in t whose kth coefficient involves Φ n (z,s+k,a). This basic identity leads to interesting evaluations of classes of series associated with Φ n (z,s,a).
