The main objective of this paper is to derive contiguous function relations or recurrence relations and obtain an integral representation Appell k-series F_(1,k), where k>0.
Contribution/ Originality
This study originates a new formula for Appell’s series in the form of a new symbol k>0 and contributes for deriving contiguous function relations, obtaining an integral representation of the Appell’s series in terms of said symbol   k>0.
