The number of digits of n!: Index

I’m doing something that I should have done a long time ago: collect past series of posts into a single, easy-to-reference post. The following posts formed my series on computing the number of digits in n!.

Part 1: Introduction – my own childhood explorations.

Part 2: Why a power-law fit is inappropriate.

Part 3: The correct answer, using Stirling’s formula.

Part 4: An elementary derivation of the first three significant terms of Stirling’s formula.
