A WZ proof of Ramanujan’s formula for \(\pi\). (English) Zbl 0849.33003

Rassias, John M. (ed.), Geometry, analysis and mechanics. Dedicated to Archimedes on his 2281st birthday. Singapore: World Scientific. 107-108 (1994).
In view of W. N. Bailey’s [Generalized hypergeometric function series (1935; Zbl 0011.02303); (1944) result (3), p. 28] with \(a= {1\over 2}= d\), \(e= n\) the required result can be obtained very easily. Thus this paper contains nothing new. Moreover, it is most confusing since \(F(n, k)\) is not well defined where \(k\) is a dummy index.
For the entire collection see [Zbl 0835.00005].
