# Math Help - Gamma

1. ## Gamma

Calculate :
$\Gamma \left ( \frac{1}{4} \right )$

2. What sort of answer are you expecting? You are going to get an intergral that you cannot evaluate in any closed form.

Here's a hint: $\Gamma(1/4)\cdot \Gamma(3/4)\;=\;\pi \sqrt{2}$

What is the definition of the Gamma Function? Evaluate it. I get around 3.626
