On the bottom RHS of the schematic you posted, what's the order of the "hypergeometric functions" mentioned? I'm assuming 3F2 rather than 2F1, but might well be wrong, hence my asking...

Thanks!

That'd be $_4F_3$. In general, Glasser's method gives you $_6F_5$, but a two fold reduction to $_4F_3$ is possible.

Thanks, Balarka!

I missed this one at the time, but just came across the following paper by M.L. Glasser yesterday...
