Problem 46025. Evaluate the gamma function
Several formulas can approximate the gamma function on the complex domain, but all of them have issues. Please, look at its plot before starting. Nonetheless, there is a trick that makes them all work; and you must find it (I've lost some time trying different formulas, adding more terms, but it is not the way to go).
I've found a 1968-paper by Wrench, Concerning Two Series for the Gamma Function, which gives us the 20th first terms of one formula for instance. https://www.ams.org/journals/mcom/1968-22-103/S0025-5718-1968-0237078-4/ (It would be more than enough if there weren't issues with all approximations.)
lol that was fun xD
