Visible Point Vector Identity

A set of identities involving $n$-D visible lattice points was discovered by Campbell (1994). Examples include

\prod_{\scriptstyle (a,b)=1\atop\scriptstyle a\geq 0, b\leq 1} (1-y^az^b)^{-1/b}=(1-z)^{-1/(1-y)}

for $\vert yz\vert, \vert z\vert<1$ and

\prod_{\scriptstyle (a,b,c)=1\atop\scriptstyle a,b\geq 0, c\leq 1} (1-x^ay^bz^c)^{-1/c}=(1-z)^{-1/[(1-x)(1-y)]}

for $\vert xyz\vert, \vert xz\vert, \vert yz\vert, \vert z\vert<1$.
