A REPRESENTATION OF FACTORIAL FUNCTION, THE NATURE OF γ CONSTANT AND A WAY FOR SOLVING OF FUNCTIONAL EQUATION F(x) = x · F(x - 1)

The Γ function is given as recursive relation by the definition:

(1) Derivative of the recursive relation is given as:

(2) (3)  (4) (5) (6) (7) If the recursive process is continued to ∂((n-n)!)/∂n it will be obtained:

(8) Where the Cf constant is given as . Now it is possible to be obtained a series of equations that every single one is derived by a previous:

(9) (10) (11) This sum can be summarized regarding the next formula that defines the sum of geometric series:

(12) Now, the next equations is given that may be applied for the summarization of the series:

(13) (14) (15) The final form of the formula for the series summarization is:

(16) Now It can be derived the formula of the factorial function:

(17) (18) Integrals may swap the places and thus the next formula is obtained:

(19) Anent,

(20) Now, Ψ(x) can be defined on the next way; while the next equation is valid:

(21) Where is:

(22)

Cf = γ

(23) Let we observe the next expression:

(24) With respect to the upper expression for factorial, it can be exanimated the nature of the γ constant. See the formula:

(25) Let is n = 1:

(26) (27) (28) (29) The next numeric formula for factorial computing is derived by the equations (19) and (26):

(30) The next formula for computing of the Ψ(x) is obtained with respect to the formulas (21) and (30):

(31) By the formula (30) it can be computed the numerical solution of SQR(-1)!:

(32)
