A New Proof for a Terminating "Strange" Hypergeometric
Evaluation of Gasper and Rahman Conjectured by Gosper
We present a new proof for a "strange" hypergeometric
identity conjectured by Gosper,
which was first proven by Gasper and Rahman, respectively Ekhad.
This proof is based on inversion techniques. It is simpler, shorter
and more accessible.
The paper has been finally published under the same title in
C. R. Acad. Sci. Paris Sér. I Math. 318 (1994), 505-508.
