Abstract: In this paper, by using integral representations for several Mathieu type series, a number of integral transforms of Hankel type are derived here for general families of Mathieu type series. These results generalize the corresponding ones on the Fourier transforms of Mathieu type series, obtained recently by Elezovic et.al. [4], Tomovski [19] and Tomovski and Vu Kim Tuan [20].

Keywords: Integral representations, Mathieu type series, Hankel transform, Fourier transform, Bessel type function, Fox-Wright function, Sonine-Schafheitlin formula, Fox H-function.

The infinite series



is named after Emile Leonard Mathieu (1835-1890), who investigated it in his 1890 work [8] on elasticity of solid bodies. An integral representation of (1.1) is given by (See [5])




Several interesting results dealing with integral representations and bounds for a slight generalization of the Mathieu series with a fractional power, defined as




can be found in the works by Diananda [2]. Tomovski and Trencevski [16], Cerone and Lenard [1] and Tomovski [18]. Srivastava and Tomovski [14] defined a family of generalized Mathieu series




where it is tacitly assumed that the positive sequence



is so chosen that the infinite series in definition (1.4) converges, that is that the following auxiliary series


is convergent. Comparing the definitions (1.1), (1.3) and (1.4), we see that    




Furthermore, the special cases  and  have been

investigated by Qi [13], Diananda [2], Tomovski [17] and Cerone-Lenard [1].


Definitions and formulas:


In this section we give some definitions and formulas needed for computation of the Hankel transforms of


In order to evaluate the Hankel type transform of , we first get  in Sonine-Schafheitlin formula {see example, [6, p.692]) :


with a corresponding expression for the case when , which is obtained from (2.1) by interchanging a and b, and also. In view of the relationship


we find from the Sonine-Schafheitlin formula (2.1) that


,                                                                    (2.3)


together with the corresponding integral derived from the analogue of (2.1) for the case when . Thus by further applying integral formula (2.3) and its companion when, we obtain:

                      ,                      (2.4)




If we apply the Sonine-Schafheitlin formula (2.1), first with



and then with we get


where         .                                                           (2.5)

         .                                                       (2.6)

For the evaluation of the Hankel type transform of the general Mathieu type series    , we need the definition of the Meijer G-function and the Fox H-function (for more details, see e.g. in [3, Vol. 1, [12]).

Definition 1: By a Fox’s H-function we mean a generalized hypergeometric function defined by means of the Mellin-Barnes-type contour integral.




where t is a suitable contour in , the orders are integers, and the parameters,  are such that ……..

Many special functions are particular cases of the H-function.

For example, if , it reduces to the Meijer G-function (for definition and properties, See [3, Vol.1]) :


On the other hand, the Fox-Wright - function is the following special case of the H-function, see for example in [15]:


Next we use of the following Miller transform of a product of two hypergeometric functions, proven by Miller and Srivastava [9] (see also [12, Sect. 2.22, p. 333]).



Substituting the relation (See [11, p. 727])


into the integral formula (2.11) with


 we get          



In order to evaluate the Hankel type transform, we apply the known integral formula from [11, p.355] with:



Using relation (2.10) with by (2.14) we get the following integral formula:



3. Evaluation of Hankel type transforms:

The Hankel type transform of order  is defined by   


where is the Bessel function of the first kind and of order with.

In view of the relationship (2.1) and .                                            (3.2)

The Hankel type transform reduces to the Sin-Fourier and Cos-Fourier transforms:


For a generalization of the Hankel type transform as well as the Sin-Fourier and Cos-Fourier transforms, see Luchko and Kiryakova [7].

Using the integral formula (2.4), we first evaluate the Hankel type transform of :



 .                         (3.3)

Using the relation [6, p.1041]


we get





         ,                                                (3.4)

where the Cauchy Principal Value (PV) of the last integral is assumed to exist. By a direct computation, the same formula (3.4) was recently proved by Elezovic et. al [4].

The integral representation of, obtained by Cerone and Lenard in [1] is given by

.                         (3.5)

Applying integral formula (2.5), we obtain




              ,                                               (3.6)


In order to evaluate the Hankel type transform of  we apply its integral representation from [14]:



,and integral formula (2.13). Thus we have

The integral representation of obtained by Srivastava and Tomovski [14] is given by



Using this integral representation and (2.15), we get
