Parametric Improper Integrals, Wallis Formula and Catalan Numbers
Dana-Picard, Thierry; Zeitoun, David G.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v43 n4 p515-520 2012
We present a sequence of improper integrals, for which a closed formula can be computed using Wallis formula and a non-straightforward recurrence formula. This yields a new integral presentation for Catalan numbers.
