Certain character sums and hypergeometric series

Rupam Barman and Neelam Saikia

Vol. 295 (2018), No. 2, 271–289

We prove two transformations for the p-adic hypergeometric series which can be described as p-adic analogues of a Kummer’s linear transformation and a transformation of Clausen. We first evaluate two character sums, and then relate them to the p-adic hypergeometric series to deduce the transformations. We also find another transformation for the p-adic hypergeometric series from which many special values of the p-adic hypergeometric series as well as finite field hypergeometric functions are obtained.
