Four selfreciprocal integral transformations of Hankel type are defined through(i,μf)(y)=Fi(y)=0αi(x)i,μ(xy)f(x)dx,i,μ1=i,μ,where i=1,2,3,4; μ0; α1(x)=x1+2μ, 1,μ(x)=xμJμ(x), Jμ(x) being the Bessel function of the first kind of order μ; α2(x)=x12μ, 2,μ(x)=(1)μx2μ1,μ(x); α3(x)=x12μ, 3,μ(x)=x1+2μ1,μ(x), and α4(x)=x1+2μ, 4,μ(x)=(1)μx1,μ(x). The simultaneous use of transformations 1,μ, and 2,μ, (which are denoted by μ) allows us to solve many problems of Mathematical Physics involving the differential operator Δμ=D2+(1+2μ)x1D, whereas the pair of transformations 3,μ and 4,μ, (which we express by μ*) permits us to tackle those problems containing its adjoint operator Δμ*=D2(1+2μ)x1D+(1+2μ)x2, no matter what the real value of μ be. These transformations are also investigated in a space of generalized functions according to the mixed Parseval equation0f(x)g(x)dx=0(μf)(y)(μ*g)(y)dy,which is now valid for all real μ.
