We study functions related to the experimentally observed Havriliak- Negami dielectric relaxation pattern proportional in the frequency domain to [1 + (iωτ0)α]-β with τ0 > 0 being some characteristic time. For α = l/k < 1 (l and k being positive and relatively prime integers) and β > 0 we furnish exact and explicit expressions for response and relaxation functions in the time domain and suitable probability densities in their domain dual in the sense of the inverse Laplace transform. All these functions are expressed as finite sums of generalized hypergeometric functions, convenient to handle analytically and numerically. Introducing a reparameterization β = (2 - q)/(q - 1) and τ0 = (q - 1)1/α (1 < q < 2) we show that for 0 < α < 1 the response functions fα,β(t/τ0) go to the one-sided Lévy stable distributions when q tends to one. Moreover, applying the self-similarity property of the probability densities gα,β (u), we introduce two-variable densities and show that they satisfy the integral form of the evolution equation. © 2018 IOP Publishing Ltd.
