Multidimensional Matrix Inversions and Ar and Dr Basic Hypergeometric Series

  • Michael Schlosser


We compute the inverse of a specific infinite r-dimensional matrix, thus unifying multidimensional matrix inversions recently found by Milne, Lilly, and Bhatnagar. Our inversion is an r-dimensional extension of a matrix inversion previously found by Krattenthaler. We also compute the inverse of another infinite r-dimensional matrix. As applications of our matrix inversions, we derive new summation formulas for multidimensional basic hypergeometric series.
