Lerche–Newberger sum rule

The Lerche–Newberger, or Newberger, sum rule, discovered by B. S. Newberger in 1982,[1][2][3] finds the sum of certain infinite series involving Bessel functions Jα of the first kind. It states that if μ is any non-integer complex number, \scriptstyle\gamma \in (0,1], and Re(α + β) > −1, then

\sum_{n=- \infin}^\infin\frac{(-1)^n J_{\alpha - \gamma n}(z)J_{\beta + \gamma n}(z)}{n+\mu}=\frac{\pi}{\sin \mu \pi}J_{\alpha + \gamma \mu}(z)J_{\beta - \gamma \mu}(z).

Newberger's formula generalizes a formula of this type proven by Lerche in 1966; Newberger discovered it independently. Lerche's formula has γ =1; both extend a standard rule for the summation of Bessel functions, and are useful in plasma physics.[4][5][6][7]
