Wright Type Hypergeometric Function and Its Properties


Let s and z be complex variables, Γ(s) be the Gamma function, and for any complex v be the generalized Pochhammer symbol. Wright Type Hypergeometric Function is defined (Virchenko et al. [1]), as: where which is a direct generalization of classical Gauss Hypergeometric Function 2F1(a,b;c;z). The principal aim of this paper is to study the various properties of this Wright type hypergeometric function 2R1(a,b;c;τ;z); which includes differentiation and integration, representation in terms of pFq and in terms of Mellin-Barnes type integral. Euler (Beta) transforms, Laplace transform, Mellin transform, Whittaker transform have also been obtained; along with its relationship with Fox H-function and Wright hypergeometric function.
