    Gamma Lanczos Sum

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Calculate the Lanczos sum for the approximation of the gamma function.

    The Lanczos approximation for the gamma function can be written in partial fraction form as follows:

    Lanczos approximation for gamma function.

    where g is an arbitrary constant and L_g(n) is the Lanczos sum.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/math-base-special-gamma-lanczos-sum

    Usage

    var gammaLanczosSum = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-gamma-lanczos-sum' );

    gammaLanczosSum( x )

    Calculates the Lanczos sum for the approximation of the gamma function.

    var v = gammaLanczosSum( 4.0 );
    // returns ~950.366
    
    v = gammaLanczosSum( -1.5 );
    // returns ~1373366.245
    
    v = gammaLanczosSum( -0.5 );
    // returns ~-699841.735
    
    v = gammaLanczosSum( 0.5 );
    // returns ~96074.186
    
    v = gammaLanczosSum( 0.0 );
    // returns Infinity
    
    v = gammaLanczosSum( NaN );
    // returns NaN

    Examples

    var linspace = require( '@stdlib/array-base-linspace' );
    var gammaLanczosSum = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-gamma-lanczos-sum' );
    
    var x = linspace( -10.0, 10.0, 100 );
    
    var i;
    for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
        console.log( 'x: %d, f(x): %d', x[ i ], gammaLanczosSum( x[ i ] ) );
    }
