COMMENTS

Also known as Gibbs constant.

Integral(sin(x)/x dx) = x - x^3/(3*3!) + x^5/(5*5!) - x^7/(7*7!) + ... - Harry J. Smith, May 01 2009

Also called Wilbraham-Gibbs (or Gibbs-Wilbraham) constant after the English mathematician Henry Wilbraham (1825-1883) and the American scientist Josiah Willard Gibbs (1839-1903). - Amiram Eldar, Jun 15 2021
