Hypergeometric series are powerful mathematical tools with many usages. Many mathematical functions, such as trigonometric functions, can be partly or entirely expressed in terms of them. In most cases this allows efficient evaluation of such functions, their derivatives and their integrals. They are also the most efficient way known to compute constants… CONTINUE READING
