I just found this thesis today on the net.
The guy calculates 1F1(a, b; z) and 2F1(a, b, c; z) for
a,b,c *in* R, and z *in* C. He uses many numerical techniques.
It might be fascinating to extend his research to template
code in Boost and certain domains of
Just an idea, if there is still any interest in kicking around

To add to those are the hypergeometric functions 1F1 and 2F1, note however
that these are not only hard to implement well, but they are practically
untestable (too many arguments). Unfortunately they are also very useful!
A good research project though...
