Has anyone seen this representation for gamma function before?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\Gamma(z) = \int_0^1\ dt\,\, t^{z-1}(e^{-t}\, -\, \sum_{n=0}^N\frac{(-t)^{n}}{n!})\,\, +\,\, \sum_{n=0}^N\frac{(-1)^{n}}{n!}\frac{1}{z+n}\,\, +\,\, \int_1^\infty dt\,\, e^{-t}\,t^{z-1}[/tex]

for Re(z) > -N-1

I can't figure out how to prove this...
