Re: Integrate problem


Look at the TraditionalForm and you will see that HypergeometricPFQ[{}, {b1, b2}, z] is 0F2[{}, {b1, b2}, z], i.e., there are no numerator parameters in the series expansion

SeriesCoefficient[HypergeometricPFQ[{}, {b1, b2}, z], {z, 0, n}] == 
  1/(Pochhammer[b1, n]*Pochhammer[b2, n]*n!) // FullSimplify

True
