Improvement of the degree setting in Gosper's algorithm.
Journal of Symbolic Computation 16 (1993), 243-258.

A detailed study of the degree setting for Gosper's algorithm for indefinite hypergeometric summation is presented. In particular, we discriminate between rational and proper hypergeometric input. As a result, the critical degree bound can be improved in the former case.
