Proposition: Gamma Function

The improper integral $\int_0^\infty \exp(-t)t^{x-1}dt$ is convergent if and only if $x > 0.$ For a given $x>0$, we call this limit the Gamma function $\Gamma(x)$ and set $$\Gamma(x):=\int_0^\infty \exp(-t)t^{x-1}dt,$$ where $\exp$ denotes the real exponential function.
