/// Calculates ln(gamma(x)) (natural logarithm of the gamma | |

/// function) using the Lanczos approximation. | |

/// | |

/// The approximation expresses the gamma function as: | |

/// `gamma(z+1) = sqrt(2*pi)*(z+g+0.5)^(z+0.5)*exp(-z-g-0.5)*Ag(z)` | |

/// `g` is an arbitrary constant; we use the approximation with `g=5`. | |

/// | |

/// Noting that `gamma(z+1) = z*gamma(z)` and applying `ln` to both sides: | |

/// `ln(gamma(z)) = (z+0.5)*ln(z+g+0.5)-(z+g+0.5) + ln(sqrt(2*pi)*Ag(z)/z)` | |

/// | |

/// `Ag(z)` is an infinite series with coefficients that can be calculated | |

/// ahead of time - we use just the first 6 terms, which is good enough | |

/// for most purposes. | |
