# On the Properties of Beta Function

I have been working on the iterated properties of especially Beta Function and hope you enjoy it too. We have,

$$\int_0^1 t^{x-1}(\,1-t)\,^{y-1}dt$$ $$=$$$$\frac{\Gamma(x)\Gamma(y)}{\Gamma(x+y)}$$ $$\implies$$ $$\int_0^1t^{x-2}(\,1-t)\,^y\cdot\frac{t}{1-t}dt$$ ,then by using the geometric series we have ,

$\frac{\Gamma(x)\Gamma(y)}{\Gamma(x+y)}$$=$$\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\Gamma(x+n-1)\Gamma(y+1)}{\Gamma(x+y+n)}$

$\implies$ $\frac{\Gamma(x)\Gamma(y)}{\Gamma(x+y)\Gamma(y+1)}$= $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\Gamma(x+n-1)}{\Gamma(x+y+n)}$ .Then taking natural logarithm of both sides yields,

$\ln \Gamma(x)$ +$\ln \Gamma(y)$-$\ln \Gamma(x+y)$-$\ln \Gamma(y+1)$= $\ln \sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\Gamma(x+n-1)}{\Gamma(x+y+n)}$ .Then taking d.w.r.x,

$\boxed{\psi(x)-\psi(x+y)=\frac{\Gamma(x+y)\Gamma(y+1)}{\Gamma(x)\Gamma(y)}\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{\Gamma(x+n-1)} {\Gamma(x+y+n)}(\psi(x+n-1)-\psi(x+y+n))}$ as the result. Any mistake spotted then please inform or any unknown step that you don't understand.(I wasn't able to find the code for infinity 'cause this is my first latex!!!)

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
