In mathematics, the Fox–Wright function (also known as Fox–Wright Psi function or just Wright function, not to be confused with Wright Omega function) is a generalisation of the generalised hypergeometric function pFq(z) based on ideas of Charles Fox (1928) and E. Maitland Wright (1935):

Upon changing the normalisation

it becomes pFq(z) for A1...p = B1...q = 1.

The Fox–Wright function is a special case of the Fox H-function (Srivastava & Manocha 1984, p. 50):
