Mgfun

Introduction to the Package Mgfun and Related Packages The Mgfun Project is a collection of packages for the computer algebra system Maple, and is intended for the symbolic manipulation of a large class of special functions and combinatorial sequences (in one or several variables and indices) that appear in many branches of mathematics, mathematical physics, and engineering sciences. Members of the class satisfy a crucial finiteness property which makes the class amenable to computer algebra methods and enjoy numerous algorithmic closure properties, including algorithmic closures under integration and summation. (package Gfun, which performs the same calculations as Mgfun in the univariate case.)
