Wilf's Formula and a Generalization of the Choi-Lee-Srivastava Identities

  • Ulrich Abel Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen
Keywords: Euler-Mascheroni constant, infinite product formulas, hyperbolic functions


The identities of Choi, Lee, and Srivastava imply a formula proposed by Wilf. We show that these identities are immediate consequences of the well-known product formulas for the sine function and the cosine function. Moreover, we prove a generalization.
