q Functions
Introduced soon after ordinary hypergeometric functions, the q functions have long been studied as theoretical generalizations of hypergeometric and other functions. Mathematica for the first time allows full numerical evaluation of q functions, as well as extensive symbolic manipulation—allowing routine use of q functions in closed forms for sums, products, recurrence equation solutions, and more.
