Asymptotic formulas for the gamma function by Gosper
The main aim of this paper is to give two general asymptotic expansions for the gamma function, which include the Gosper formula as their special cases. Furthermore, we present an inequality for the
ASYMPTOTIC EXPANSIONS OF THE GAMMA FUNCTION ASSOCIATED WITH THE WINDSCHITL AND SMITH FORMULAS
In this paper, we develop the Windschitl and Smith formulas for the gamma function to complete asymptotic expansions and provide explicit formulas for determining the coefficients of these asymptotic
A new fast asymptotic series for the gamma function
It is the scope of this paper to present a new formula for approximating the gamma function. The importance of this new formula consists in the fact that the convergence of the corresponding
Efficient approximations of the gamma function and further properties
The aim of this paper is to introduce some simple and fast formulas for approximating the gamma function. Some involved functions are completely monotonic. The corresponding asymptotic series are
A New Asymptotic Series and Estimates Related to Euler Mascheroni Constant
In this article, we give a new asymptotic series and some estimates for a sequence that converges to Euler-Mascheroni's constant.

SHARP INEQUALITIES FOR FACTORIAL n
Let n be a positive integer. We provewith the best possible constantsα = 1 - 2πe-2 = 0.149663... and β = 1/6 = 0.1666666...This refines and extends a result of Sandor and Debnath, who proved that the
Asymptotic Expansions—I
The interest in asymptotic analysis originated from the necessity of searching for approximations to functions close the point(s) of interest. Suppose we have a function f(x) of single real parameter
Decision procedure for indefinite hypergeometric summation
Abstract Given a summand an, we seek the “indefinite sum” S(n) determined (within an additive constant) by [Formula: see text] or, equivalently, by [Formula: see text] An algorithm is exhibited

TLDR
An algorithm is exhibited which, given a summand a(n), finds those S(n) with the property 'indefinite sum' and can determine the three identities of [Formula: see text], 'S(m) - S(0), for any S( n) satisfying Eq. 2.
