    Equality of definite integrals, relation between integrands

    Suppose we are given two functions: f:\mathbb R \times \mathbb C \rightarrow\mathbb C g:\mathbb R \times \mathbb C \rightarrow\mathbb C and the equation relating the Stieltjes Integrals \int_a^\infty f(x,z)d\sigma(x)=\int_a^\infty g(x,z)d\rho(x) where a is some real number, the...

    Gamma Function and the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

    The so called product integral was developed in 1887 by Volterra according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Product_integral And here is the page for multiplicative calculus, just in case anyone is interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiplicative_calculus

    Gamma Function and the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

    Just in case anyone wanted to know, I found a lot about it. It's called Bigeometric (or Multiplicative) Calculus.

    Gamma Function and the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

    Yea I think so too. This is a little bit off topic, but, it was also my reason for looking at the properties of the gamma function. Have you seen any theory on extending a product over a continuous interval, as is done with the sum to create the integral? I have tried to develop an approach...

    Gamma Function and the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

    Actually, it follows immediately if you change the LHS of the last line to the equivalent -(log(gamma(1+s))-log(gamma(1))/s since log(gamma(1))=log(1)=0 and the digamma function ψ is defined to be the logarithmic derivative of the gamma function, so that under the limit as s ->0 this is...

    Gamma Function and the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

    I didn't even think to look at digamma, but it seems that as usual, you are indeed correct. It follows straight from a series representation for it. Basically, the last line in my analysis is almost exactly this ψ(x+1)=-γ+∑(1/k-1/(x+k))

    Gamma Function and the Euler-Mascheroni Constant

    I was taking a break from studying from my real analysis, electrodynamics, and nuclear physics exams this week, and, being a math-phile, I decided to play around with the gamma-function for some reason. Anyway, I used the common product expansion of the multiplicative inverse, and I arrived at a...

    How to derive beta function as pochhammer contour integral?

    Awesome, thanks. I haven't used mathematica in a few years. Actually, last time I used mathematica I don't even think I knew what a contour was. I have been using python lately to do everything computationally/graphically. It would be awesome though to not have to literally write my own program...

    The space of solutions of the classical wave equation

    No, he's right. Every solution is of that functional form. Every solution to the wave equation has a forward traveling wave and a backward traveling wave. However, the context of your conclusion solution is what is setting you off. First look at sturm-liouville theory, then learn some real and...

    Baby Rudin Theorem 1.11

    You should definitely look at Real Mathematical Analysis by Charles Chapman Pugh. I find it much easier to read than Rudin. I honestly don't know why Baby Rudin is preferred by so many, I feel like Baby is sort of outdated and lacks organization of thoughts in some of his proofs. Your...

    How to think of uniform continuity intuitively?

    I really don't know if there is a good intuitive approach to uniform continuity. I'll try... The difference between the two is that with regular continuity, the ball of radius delta about some point c depends on how far you are away from c in the domain (delta depends on x and and epsilon). In...

    Interchaning Limits and Inner Products

    Exchanging limits and anything else, i.e. derivatives, sums, integrals depends on whether or not a sequence of functions is uniformly convergent. Since in Hilbert space, the inner product is either a sum for discrete or an integral for continuous cases, such a result is dependent on whether or...

    How to derive beta function as pochhammer contour integral?

    There are a vast number of beautiful results in complex analysis. This is indeed one of them. May I ask what plotting utility you used?
