E710 -- Specimen transformationis singularis serierum
(Example of the transformation of singular series)
Euler starts with a hypergeometric series F(a, b, c, x), and
differentiates it to get a functional relation. Then he integrates to get another and ends
up with something like Legendre polynomials.
