 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Pickover says that the expression: lim(n -> infinity) e^n(n!) / (n^n * sqrt(n)) = sqrt(2*Pi) is beautiful because it connects Pi, e, radicals, factorials and infinite limits. - Jason Earls (zevi_35711(AT)yahoo.com), Mar 16 2001 Appears in the formula of the normal distribution. - Johannes W.
