Finding that integral is pretty difficult. You need to find an approximation with Taylor series, and the answer is not particularly nice...

Hi;

The gamma function is defined as

If it could be integrated then that would be the definition of the gamma function, not the integral.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
