## Abstract

Motivated by the Gaussian symplectic ensemble, Mehta andWang evaluated the n×n determinant det((a+ j -i)Γ(b+j +i)) in 2000. When a = 0, Ciucu and Krattenthaler computed the associated Pfaffian Pf((j -i)Γ(b+ j + i)) with an application to the two dimensional dimer system in 2011. Recently we have generalized the latter Pfaffian formula with a q-analogue by replacing the Gamma function by the moment sequence of the little q-Jacobi polynomials. On the other hand, Nishizawa has found a q-analogue of the Mehta-Wang formula. Our purpose is to generalize both the Mehta-Wang and Nishizawa formulae by using the moment sequence of the little q-Jacobi polynomials. It turns out that the corresponding determinant can be evaluated explicitly in terms of the Askey-Wilson polynomials.
