In this paper we use the differential recurrence relations satisfied by the 2F1 and their generalizations the pFq and Lauricella functions to associate a Lie algebra (dynamical symmetry algebra) with each of these families of special functions. We demonstrate that the representation theory of the Lie algebras yields a variety of addition theorems and generating functions for the associated families. Most of the results of this survey are contained in the author's papers - but the comments on the functions FA, FB, FC are new.
