## Log Gamma

 doublelog_gamma( double x )
This algorithm uses rational functions that approximate $\inline&space;&space;\log&space;\Gamma(x)$ to at least 18 significant decimal digits. The accuracy achieved also depends on the arithmetic system and the compiler.

## Example:

```#include <codecogs/maths/special/gamma/log_gamma.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
int main()
{
for (double x = 0; x <= 10; x += 0.5)
{
std::cout << "log Gamma(" << x << ") = " << std::setprecision(20);
std::cout << Maths::Special::Gamma::log_gamma(x) << std::endl;
}
return 0;
}```

## Output:

```log Gamma(0) = 1.#INF
log Gamma(0.5) = 0.57236494292469997
log Gamma(1) = 0
log Gamma(1.5) = -0.12078223763524526
