Here we shall give only a very brief account of the basic properties of some of these functions. For more detailed information the reader inay refer to Watson's book. 1. ~I-~)J,(~). n= 0 This we substitute in (2), remark that term by term integration may be justified if I c / z I < 1 and compare the results with (1).
