Integral representations and summations of the modified Struve function



It is known that the Struve function H ν and the modified Struve function L ν are closely connected to the Bessel function of the first kind J ν and to the modified Bessel function of the first kind I ν and possess representations through higher transcendental functions like the generalized hypergeometric 1 F 2 and the Meijer G function. Also, the NIST project and Wolfram formula collection contain a set of Kapteyn type series expansions for L ν (x). In this paper firstly, we obtain various another type integral representation formulae for L ν (x) using the technique developed by D. Jankov and the authors. Secondly, we present some summation results for different kind of Neumann, Kapteyn and Schlömilch series built by I ν (x) and L ν (x) which are connected by a Sonin–Gubler formula, and by the associated modified Struve differential equation. Finally, solving a Fredholm type convolutional integral equation of the first kind, Bromwich–Wagner line integral expressions are derived for the Bessel function of first kind J ν and for an associated generalized Schlömilch series.
