Abstract We present generalizations of Wilson’s theorem for double factorials, hyperfactorials, subfactorials, and superfactorials. 
Jacobi-Type Continued Fractions for the Ordinary Generating Functions of Generalized Factorial Functions
The article serves as a semi-comprehensive, detailed survey reference that introduces applications to many established and otherwise well-known combinatorial identities, new cases of generating functions for factorial-function-related product sequences, and other examples of the generalized integer-valued multifactorial, or $\alpha$-factorial, function sequences.


An Introduction to Gauss Factorials
Extensions of the Gauss binomial coefficient theorem are presented in terms of Gauss factorials and more generally on partial products obtained when the product (n - 1)n! is divided into M equal parts.
A Property of Twin Primes
It is deduced that for twin primes, the product of the invertible quadratic residues in is , where the sign depends on the residue class of p modulo 4.

Evaluation of Certain Legendre Symbols
If p is prime, p ≠ 2, and ab = p − 1, then the Legendre symbol is given by if p isprime, p = 2, then ab = 1, and so on.

This paper gives a necessary and sufficient condition for a real quadratic field to have classnumber 1. From this, we obtain some corollaries which contain the results in [7], [8], [9] and [10] and
The problem of coincidences
SummaryThis paper deals with the origin, history and various appearances of the problem of coincidences (matches, rencontres) in the theory of probability.
