# Wilson polynomials

In mathematics, **Wilson polynomials** are a family of orthogonal polynomials introduced by James A. Wilson (1980)
that generalize Jacobi polynomials, Hahn polynomials, and Charlier polynomials.

They are defined in terms of the generalized hypergeometric function and the Pochhammer symbols by
