### Very interesting function

Here's some very interesting function:

I'm making plots now.
It's pity that I can't upload 3D .vrml format in the forum.

### Re: Very interesting function

And my question: why this foundamental function is so complicated?

### Re: Very interesting function

Here's another: when x and y are negative the real part becomes to ostilate:

### Re: Very interesting function

Then the immagineric part is ostilating too.

### Re: Very interesting function

What does the Capital Gamma letter mean?
Is it a product repeated with integers?  If so, why are the plots continuous?

What does the exclamation point mean?
Is it factorial?

### Re: Very interesting function

The exclamation point IS factorial

It looks quite strange, but actually it's one of the most inportant functions in the contemorary mathematics. There's an equation that connects it with the factorial:
Г(k+1)=k!
But Г is defined over all complex numbers. So that's the generalization of the factorial over the complex numbers.
But there's another too. It may be complex for some arguments so it's plot is 4d: 1 dimention for x, 1 for y, 1 for u and 1 for v, where
Г(x+iy)=u+iv.
That's why there 2 plots for my function: 1 for the real part of the rezult: Re(Г(xy+1)) and one for the imagineric: Im(Г(xy+1))

### Re: Very interesting function

Can you point me to a link to read more about this subject?
I feel kind of dumb looking at this.

### Re: Very interesting function

What made you interested in plotting x * y, and why wouldn't f(.25,.75) = f(.75,.25) ?
x * y = y * x, so where is your line of symmetry (y=x)?

I don't know.
I'll see.
Very interesting argument.
