Zeros of $p$-adic hypergeometric functions, $p$-adic analogues of Kummer's and Pfaff's identities

Neelam Saikia

Vol. 307 (2020), No. 2, 491–510

We classify all the zeros and nonzero values of a family of hypergeometric series in the p-adic setting. These values of hypergeometric series in the p-adic setting lead to transformations of hypergeometric series in the p-adic setting which can be described as p-adic analogues of Kummer’s and Pfaff’s linear transformations on classical hypergeometric series. We also evaluate certain summation identities for hypergeometric series in the p-adic setting as well as Gaussian hypergeometric series.
