p-adic analog of Heine’s hypergeometric q-series

Neal I. Koblitz

Vol. 102 (1982), No. 2, 373–383
Abstract

Generalized complex analytic special functions of various types, depending on a parameter 0 < q < 1, have recently been studied by R. Askey, G. E. Andrews and others [1–3]. The purpose of this paper is to discuss a p-adic analytic construction which is analogous to the classical theory of E. Heine’s [7] q-extension of the hypergeometric function.
