Yes Ive seen this before.

Have you heard of hypergeometric functions or generalized hypergeometric functions ?

When I was still active at sci.math I mentioned the underrated and insuffiently known properties and powers of the hypergeometric functions and more particular their INVERSES.

Inverse hypergeometric functions is one those other " crazy math concepts " apart from tetration , collatz and prime twins.

Bill Dubuque and a few others recognized / remembered the power of these functions.

But its far from mainstraim.

It is amazing how unexpectedly these inverse hypergeometric functions can occur.

.....

A good understanding of the gamma function is essential.

Hey Tommy, I posted it on mathstack; http://math.stackexchange.com/questions/...237#930237 and got quick responses! I need to get really good at understanding and working with the Gamma function.
