Gauß’s continued fraction[edit]

How about renaming this article to match the names for all other persons’ inventions? I have never heard of e.g. "polynomials of Legendre". --Yecril (talk) 07:43, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Formula conversion rationale[edit]

I understand that converting display-style formulas is frowned upon; however, compare how the formula looks before and after: Image:Hypergeometric.PNG Otherwise, I have commented out the original text so that it can be easily restored. --Yecril (talk) 08:52, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

confluent denominator parameter[edit]

The name of confluent denominator parameter is c because it is the limit case where b → +∞. --Yecril (talk) 10:24, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

poles of 2F1[edit]

The article mentions poles of the analytic continuation of the function 2F1 outside the unit circle; any information about them? --Yecril (talk) 10:28, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

real or complex analytic function[edit]

The derivation part is (to me at least) somewhat unclear. It would improve if some knowledgeable person would add a more precise definition of Gauss's continued fractions. In particular I can't find out whether real or complex analytic functions are meant. The z suggests complex, but suggestion has no place in an encyclopedia.
