Gamma Function in closed form?

  1. Mar 1, 2009 #1
    Could you consider the gamma function to be a closed form representation?

    If I could express a numerical series in terms of the gamma function, would it be considered a closed form representation?

    Yes, but obviously not in terms of elementary functions.
