    For what values of k would
    [tex]\mathop {\lim }\limits_{x \to \infty } \frac{{\Gamma \left( {kx + 1} \right)}}
    {{x^{kx} }} [/tex]

    Certainly for k < 0 it diverges, since gamma is ill-behaved there. For k > e it also diverges by Stirling's approximation. There's the easy part! I'll have to think about the remaining (0, e]. (It obviously converges for k = 0.)
