Bromwich contour integration of the gamma function

$$\frac{1}{2\pi i}\int^{c+i\infty}_{c-i\infty}\Gamma(a+t)\Gamma(b-t) s^{-t}\,dt= \frac{\Gamma(a+b)}{(1+s)^{a+b}}s^a$$ $$\textit{proof}$$ Consider the following function $$f(z) = \Gamma(z+a)\Gamma(b-z) s^{-z}$$ Suppose that \(a,b \in \mathbb{R} \) and \(a < b \). Note that the Gamma function has a pole of order 1 at each non-positive integer where … Continue reading
