    product of gamma functions

    What identity is used to show that  \Gamma \Big(\frac{1}{2} + \frac{in}{2} \Big) \ \Gamma \Big( \frac{1}{2} - \frac{in}{2} \Big) = \pi \ \text{sech} \Big(\frac{n \pi}{2}} \Big) ?

    EDIT: Never mind. It's just an application of the reflection formula.

    Do you have this book? If not, you should get it. All the kind of questions you ask and much, much more are in there. It is a great book.
