3.2.8 Mathematical Constants

Mathematical constants.

Euler's constantEulerGamma is given by the limit . It appears in many integrals, and asymptotic formulas. It is sometimes known as the Euler-Mascheroni constant, and denoted .
Catalan's constant

Catalan is given by the sum

. It often appears in asymptotic estimates of combinatorial functions.

  • Mathematical constants can be evaluated to arbitrary precision.
