abstract = {This is an overview over standard techniques for holonomic functions,
written for readers who are new to the subject. We state the definition for holonomy
in a couple of different ways, including some concrete special cases as well as
a more abstract and more general version. We give a collection of standard examples
and state several fundamental properties of holonomic objects. Two techniques
which are most useful in applications are explained in some more detail: closure
properties, which can be used to prove identities among holonomic functions, and
guessing, which can be used to generate plausible conjectures for equations satisfied
by a given function.},
