### Abstract

We prove several new general theorems for the explicit evaluation of the Rogers–Ramanujan continued fraction \$\$R(q)\$\$ R ( q ) by parametrization of Ramanujan’s theta-functions and give examples. We also establish general theorems for the explicit evaluation of the parameter \$\$k:=R(q)R^2(q)\$\$ k : = R ( q ) R 2 ( q ) defined by Ramanujan in his notebook leading to the explicit evaluations of \$\$R(q)\$\$ R ( q ) .
