COMMENTS

Arises in expressions such as A002109(n) = 1^1*2^2*3^3*...*n^n which is asymptotic to A*n^(n^2/2 + n/2 + 1/12)*exp(-n^2/4). See A002109 for more references and links.

Named after the English mathematician and astronomer James Whitbread Lee Glaisher (1848-1928) and the Swiss mathematician Hermann Kinkelin (1832-1913). - Amiram Eldar, Jun 15 2021

FORMULA

A = 2^(1/36)*Pi^(1/6)*exp(1/3*(-Gamma/4 + s(2)/3 - s(3)/4 + ...)) where s(k) denotes Sum_{n>=0} 1/(2n+1)^k.

Closed expressions for A are exp(-zeta'(2)/2/Pi^2 + log(2*Pi)/12 + Gamma/12) or exp(1/12-zeta'(-1)).
