Well, if we are going to be so literal, then since the original post did not want an answer but a vote I am going to vote yes!! This is maths 21st century style!
That's exactly what happened on LI... everyone voted on some beautiful formula by RAMANUJAN (as in the movie). 
Most people on LI were not interested in accuracy, but in beauty. It has become art, like physics 60 years ago. Even I have a t-shirt with E = mc^2 !
Hollywood has destroyed mathematics.

How can you differentiate wrt an integer?

n! is a special case of gammaish function.(z) when z is an integer, yes?
