We apply a result of David and Jon Borwein to evaluate a sequence of highly-oscillatory integrals whose integrands are the products of a rapidly growing number of sinc functions. The value of each integral is given in the form $\pi(1-t)/2$, where the numbers $t$ quickly become very tiny. Using the Euler-Maclaurin summation formula, we calculate these numbers to high precision. For example, the integrand of the tenth integral in the sequence is the product of 68100152 sinc functions.

Lehmer in his publication [6] defined a measure $$\mu=\sum\limits_{j=1}^J\frac{1}{\log_{10}\left(\left|\beta_j\right|\right)},$$ where $\beta_j$ is a set of the constants that may be either

Some Remarkable Properties of Sinc and Related Integrals
• Mathematics

AbstractUsing Fourier transform techniques, we establish inequalities for integrals of the form $$\smallint _0^x \prod\limits_{k = 0}^n {\frac{{\sin (akx)_{} }}{{akx}}dx.}$$ We then give quite
A remark concerning sinc integrals
We give a simple proof of Hanspeter Schmid's result that $K_n:=2\int_0^\infty\cos t\,\prod_{k=0}^n\mathrm{sinc}\left(\frac{t}{2k+1}\right)\mathrm{d}t=\pi/2$ if $n\in\{0,1,\ldots,55\}$, and

A Remark on Stirling’s Formula
We shall prove Stirling’s formula by showing that for n=1, 2,… $$n! = \sqrt {2\pi } {n^{n + 1/2}}{e^{ - n}} \cdot {e^{{r_n}}}$$ (1) where rn satisfies the double inequality
