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