Can you say that even though the integral diverges and by definition ?

Specifically what I want to know is does diverge, or does it equal ?

The definition...

... is valid only for . For the value of z with non positive real part You have to compute the so called 'analytic extension' of , that pratically means to use the 'Euler's formula'...

Kind regards

So then diverges?

The gamma integral doesn't converge .
