Gamma function

In mathematics, the gamma function is an extension of the factorial function, with its argument shifted down by 1, to real and complex numbers. That is, if n is a positive integer: The gamma function is defined for all complex numbers except the negative integers and zero. For complex numbers with a positive real part, it is defined via an improper integral that converges: This integral function is extended by analytic continuation to all complex numbers except the non-positive integers, yielding the meromorphic function we call the gamma function. The gamma function is a component in various probability-distribution functions, and as such it is applicable in the fields of probability and statistics, as well as combinatorics.
