On the summation of certain legendre series

  • Sarva Jit Singh
  • Ari Ben-Menahem


The purpose of this paper is to find some recurrence relations for sums of infinite series of the formσ P l n (cosθ)tl+m/(l+m). This is achieved by transforming the sums into integrals and then using the recurrence relations for these integrals.
