What is the name of... continuous factorial? :-) - Gottfried - 02/21/2009

No -
it's not "gamma". It's fractorial

(from: S.C.Woon "Analytic Continuation of Operators — Operators acting complex s-times" Pg.1)

"(...) We know that in Complex Analysis [1], functions can be analytic continued from integer points n on the real line to complex plane s, eg. from fractorial n! to Gamma function (...)"
