Evaluation of sums involving products of Gaussian q-binomial coefficients with applications

From the journal Mathematica Slovaca


Sums of products of two Gaussian q-binomial coefficients, are investigated, one of which includes two additional parameters, with a parametric rational weight function. By means of partial fraction decomposition, first the main theorems are proved and then some corollaries of them are derived. Then these q-binomial identities will be transformed into Fibonomial sums as consequences.
