On pages 338 and 339 in his first notebook, Ramanujan records eighteen values for a certain product of theta-function. All these have been proved by B. C. Berndt, H. H. Chan and L-C. Zhang [4]. Recently M. S. Mahadeva Naika and B. N. Dharmendra [7, 8] and Mahadeva Naika and M. C. Maheshkumar [9] have obtained general theorems to establish explicit evaluations of Ramanujan's remarkable product of theta-function. Following Ramanujan we define a new function bM,N as defined in (1.5). The main purpose of this paper is to establish some new general theorems for explicit evaluations of product of theta-function.
