Meijer's G-Function

G_{p,q}^{m,n}\left({x \vert^{a_1, \ldots, a_p}_{b_1, \ldots,...
...j=m+1}^q\Gamma(1-b_j+z)\prod_{j=n+1}^q \Gamma(q_j-z)} x^z\,dz,

where $\Gamma(z)$ is the Gamma Function. The Contour $\gamma_L$ and other details are discussed by Gradshteyn and Ryzhik (1980, pp. 896-903 and 1068-1071). Prudnikov et al. (1990) contains an extensive nearly 200-page listing of formulas for the Meijer $G$-function.
