```Note: In the previous posting of this query, the variable "alpha" was employed, which led to now-apparent problems in the mailing with the presentation of the formula in plaintext. I've replaced "alpha" by "a", so hopefully now the formula below will be usable as intended.

> The central object in it is the formula in Figure 3--given in plain text at the bottom  of this email. (It can be copied-and-pasted into a Mathematica notebook.).
>
> The formula contains a "family" of six 7F6 hypergeometric functions. It seems to have a number of very interesting (quantum-information-theoretic) properties--as indicated in the preprint. (The upper and lower parameters form intriguing sequences, and the argument of all the six functions is (27/64) = (3/4)^3. For non-negative integers and half-integers, it appears to yield rational values.)
>
> It took considerable work to get the formula as "concise" as it is now (LeafCount=530). The original form, generated using the Mathematica FindSequenceFunction command on a sequence of length 32, extended over several pages of output--and also had six (different) hypergeometric functions embedded in it.
>
> I have devoted a considerable amount of  effort, unsuccessfully, to see if it can be made more concise/digestible. In particular, I have never been able to derive an equivalent  form in which fewer than six independent hypergeometric formulas are present.
