Unless I am missing something it seems he missed a bracket. In the numerator there are 4 ( brackets and only 3 ) brackets.

No, the "Euler equation" they are talking about looks like this:

[tex]
\frac{\Gamma(x) \Gamma(y)}{\Gamma(x+y)}
[/tex]

So it should be:

[tex]
\frac{\Gamma(1-\alpha(s)) \Gamma(1-\alpha(t))}{\Gamma(2-\alpha(s)-\alpha(t))}
[/tex]

A two not a z.
