Abstract: This paper details an efficient general method and a Maple implementation for the direct numerical evaluation of the Wright omega function to arbitrary precision over C. Because omega is discontinuous along two rays in C this is nontrivial, and the implementation demonstrates the utility of computer algebra support for signed zero and control of rounding modes. This implementation has now become part of a commercial release of Maple (note added 2006).
