The main functions treated in this chapter are the generalized hypergeometric function , the Appell (two-variable hypergeometric) functions , , , , and the Meijer -function . Alternative notations are , , and for the generalized hypergeometric function, , , , , for the Appell functions, and for the Meijer -function.
