Does anybody know if it's possible to evaluate the gamma function analytically? I know it becomes a factorial for integers, and there's a trick involving a switch to polar coordinates for half values, but what about any other number? I have tried using a Taylor expansion and residue integration, but neither seems to work. Just curious if it's possible.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
