    this is Euler's reflection formula ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reflection_formula I never tried this. Looks worth!!

    \[\displaystyle \sin(\pi z) = \pi z \prod_{n \neq 0} \left(1- \frac zn\right) \exp\left( \frac z n \right)\]

    beta function\[B(x,y)=\frac{\Gamma(x)\Gamma(y)}{\Gamma(x+y)}\]so\[\Gamma(z)\Gamma(1-z)=B(z,1-z)=\int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{u^{z-1}}{1+u} \text{d}u\]

    \[\displaystyle \frac 1 {\Gamma \left({z}\right)} = z e^{\gamma z} \prod_{n=1}^\infty \left({ 1 + \frac z n}\right) \exp\left({-\frac z n}\right)\]

    that must be equal to ... directly from the formula \[ \pi \over \sin (\pi z)\] \[ \int_0^{\infty}{x^{a-1} \over {1 +x^b}}dx = {\pi \over b \sin \left ( {a \pi \over b} \right )} \]
