## On the dubious function

The dubious function is defined as follows : and

Evaluate the sum

## Gamma infinite product

Prove that

Solution

Converting the product to a sum and using duplication formula for the gamma function and telescoping,

Using Stirling formula

we get that

## Digamma and Trigamma functions

Let and denote the digamma and trigamma functions respectively. Prove that:

where denotes the Euler – Mascheroni constant.

Solution

We begin with the recently discovered identity:

Letting we get that

Now combining this result here we conclude the exercise.

## Trigamma series

Let denote the trigamma function. Prove that

Solution

## Improper Gamma integral

Let denote the Euler’s Gamma function. Prove that

where .
