Hi all, I am desperately looking for a reference for a summation formula, which I have obtained with Mathematica.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It reads

[tex]

\sum_{k=1}^\infty{\frac{(-z)^k}{[(k+1)!]^2}H_{k+2}}=\frac{1}{2z^{3/2}}\left[\sqrt{z}\left[2-3z+\pi\operatorname{Y}_0\left(2\sqrt{z}\right)\right]-2\operatorname{J}_1\left(2\sqrt{z}\right)-\sqrt{z}\operatorname{J}_0\left(2\sqrt{z}\right)\left[2\gamma+\log z\right]\right]

[/tex]

where [itex]H_k=\sum_{n=1}^k{1/n}[/itex] is the k-th harmonic number, J and Y are Bessel functions and [itex]\gamma[/itex] is the Euler-Mascheroni constant. I couldn't find anything resembling the formula in any of the standard books. Of course, any hints as to how to prove the relation from scratch are also highly appreciated.

Thank you,

Pere
