14), or equivalently n = m + 2k, it follows that k Se. n/2. 4 Factorlals and binomial coefficients Products of consecutive integers arise quite naturally in the study of series. For a positive integer n, the product of all positive integers from 1 to n inclusive is called factorial n and denoted by n !. That is, n! = 1·2 · 3 · · · n n = 1, 2, 3, ... =n(n-1)! n = 2, 3, 4, ... 20) to hold also for n = 1, this would require 1! = 1 A particular combination of factorials that appears quite frequently in practice is the binomial coefficient.

18. 18) are much more stringent than those to justify integration under the integral sign. As with the infinite series, we see that the basic requirement for differentiation under the integral sign is uniform convergence of the integral of ar/ ox. Example 17: Use the concept of uniform convergence to derive the integral formula 00 e -pt -e -qt 1 o q ---dt=ln- O
