Abstract

The Dixon-Anderson integral is a multi-dimensional integral evaluation fundamental to the theory of the Selberg integral. The ψ11 summation is a bilateral generalization of the q-binomial theorem. It is shown that a q-generalization of the Dixon-Anderson integral, due to Evans, and multi-dimensional generalizations of the ψ11 summation, due to Milne and Gustafson, can be viewed as having a common origin in the theory of q-difference equations as expounded by Aomoto. Each is shown to be determined by a q-difference equation of rank 1, and a certain asymptotic behavior. In calculating the latter, essential use is made of the concepts of truncation, regularization and connection formulae.
