Beta Function

The Beta Function $\Beta: \C \times \C \to \C$ is defined for $\operatorname{Re} \left({x}\right), \operatorname{Re} \left({y}\right) > 0$ as:

$\displaystyle \Beta \left({x, y}\right) := \int_{\mathop \to 0}^{\mathop \to 1} t^{x - 1} \left({1 - t}\right)^{y - 1} \ \mathrm d t$


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\Beta \left({x, y}\right)\) is \Beta \left({x, y}\right) .
