## 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].
