Some summation theorems and transformations for $q$-series We introduce a double sum extension of a very well-poised series and extend to this the transformations of Bailey and Sears as well as the ${}_6\f_5$ summation formula of F.~H.~Jackson and the $q$-Dixon sum. We also give $q$-integral representations of the double sum. Generalizations of the Nassrallah-Rahman integral are also found.
