The hypergeometric function ${}_1F_1$ (sometimes denoted by $M$, sometimes called the confluent hypergeometric function of the first kind) is defined by the series $${}_1F_1(a;b;z)=\displaystyle\sum_{k=0}^{\infty} \dfrac{(a)_k z^k}{(b)_k k!},$$ where $(a)_k$ denotes the Pochhammer symbol and $k!$ denotes the factorial.

Properties[edit]

1F1(a;r;z)1F1(a;r;-z)=2F3(a,r-a;r,r/2,r/2+1/2;z^2/4)
1F1(a;2a;z)1F1(b;2b;-z)=2F3(a/2+b/2,a/2+b/2+1/2;a+1/2,b+1/2,a+b;z^2/4)
