In mathematics, the beta function, also called the Euler integral of the first kind, is a special function.The beta function was studied by Euler and Legendre and was given its name by Jacques Binet; its symbol Β is a Greek capital β rather than the similar Latin capital B.
When x and y are positive integers, it follows from the definition of the Gamma function.
