Abstract

The aim of this research paper is to provide certain generalizations of two well-known summations due to Ramanujan. The results are derived with the help of the generalized Dixon's theorem on the sum of $_3F_2$ and the generalized Kummer's theorem for $_2F_1$ obtained earlier by Lavoie et al. [3, 5]. As their special cases, we have obtained fifteen interesting summations which are closely related to Ramanujan's summation.
