Abstract: The main aim of this paper is the development of suitable bases that enable the direct series representation of orthogonal polynomial systems on nonuniform lattices (quadratic lattices of a discrete or a q-discrete variable). We present two bases of this type, the first of which allows one to write solutions of arbitrary divided-difference equations in terms of series representations, extending results given by Sprenger for the q-case. Furthermore, it enables the representation of the Stieltjes function, which has already been used to prove the equivalence between the Pearson equation for a given linear functional and the Riccati equation for the formal Stieltjes function. If the Askey-Wilson polynomials are written in terms of this basis, however, the coefficients turn out to be not q-hypergeometric. Therefore, we present a second basis, which shares several relevant properties with the first one. This basis enables one to generate the defining representation of the Askey-Wilson polynomials directly from their divided-difference equation. For this purpose, the divided-difference equation must be rewritten in terms of suitable divided-difference operators developed in previous work by the first author.

Abstract: We find Euler integral formulas, summation and reduction formulas for q-analogues of Srivastava’s three triple hypergeometric functions. The proofs use q-analogues of Picard’s integral formula for the first Appell function, a summation formula for the first Appell function based on the Bayley–Daum formula, and a general triple series reduction formula of Karlsson. Many of the formulas are purely formal, since it is difficult to find convergence regions for these functions of several complex variables. We use the Ward q-addition to describe the known convergence regions of q-Appell and q-Lauricella functions.

Abstract: In this paper, we give a pedagogical introduction to several beautiful formulas discovered by Ramanujan. Using these results, we evaluate a Ramanujan-type integral formula. The result can be expressed in terms of the Golden Ratio.

Abstract: Recently, the authors have established a large class of modular relations involving the Rogers-Ramanujan type functions J(q) and K(q) of order ten. In this paper, we establish further modular relations connecting these two functions with Rogers-Ramanujan functions, Göllnitz-Gordon functions and cubic functions, which are analogues to the Ramanujan’s forty identities for Rogers-Ramanujan functions. Furthermore, we give partition theoretic interpretations of some of our modular relations.

Abstract: In this paper, we define the generating functions for the generalized q-Stirling numbers of the second kind. By applying Mellin transform to these functions, we construct interpolation functions of these numbers at negative integers. We also derive some identities and relations related to q-Bernoulli numbers and polynomials and q-Stirling numbers of the second kind.

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to construct generating functions, related to nonnegative real parameters, for q-Eulerian type polynomials and numbers (or q-Apostol type Frobenius–Euler polynomials and numbers). We derive some identities for these polynomials and numbers based on the generating functions and functional equations. We also give multiplication formula for the generalized Apostol type Frobenius–Euler polynomials.

Abstract: It is well known that the number of 5-core partitions of 5^{k} n + 5^{k} − 1 is a multiple of 5^{k} . In [1] a statistic called a crank was developed to sort the 5-core partitions of 5n + 4 and 25n + 24 into 5 and 25 classes of equal size, respectively. In this paper we will develop the cranks that can be used to sort the 5-core partitions of 5^{k} n + 5^{k} − 1 into 5^{k} classes of equal size.

Abstract: By applying a classical method, already employed by Cauchy, to a terminating curious summation by one of the authors, a new curious bilateral q-series identity is derived. We also apply the same method to a quadratic summation by Gessel and Stanton, and to a cubic summation by Gasper, respectively, to derive a bilateral quadratic and a bilateral cubic summation formula.
