The Binomial Coefficient for Negative Arguments

Preprint English OPEN
Kronenburg, M. J.;
  • Subject: Mathematics - Combinatorics

The definition of the binomial coefficient in terms of gamma functions also allows non-integer arguments. For nonnegative integer arguments the gamma functions reduce to factorials, leading to the well-known Pascal triangle. Using a symmetry formula for the gamma functi... View more
