Since $(\frac{1}{2})!=\frac{\sqrt{\pi}}{2}$, what is $(\frac{1}{4})!$

I Once heard on the internet that $(\frac{1}{2})!=\frac{\sqrt{\pi}}{2}$ so now, I’m wondering what $(\frac{1}{4})!$ is equal to?

My attempt:

Since $(\frac{1}{2})!=\frac{\sqrt{\pi}}{2}$ and since $\frac{1}{4}=\frac{1}{2}\div2$ then:
(\frac{1}{4})!=\frac{\sqrt{\pi}}{2}\div2= \\
Is my assumption correct? If not, what is the true answer?

By the way, I asked this question just because I am curious.

Your logic is incorrect. That is not how the factorial nor the Gamma function behave. Take for example $4!$. Since $2=4\div2$, you seem to think that $2!=4!/2$, but a quick check says this is wrong.

Thanks to expressions for values of the gamma function and Wikipedia, it is known that


where $K(x)$ is the elliptic $K$ function (complete elliptic integral of the first kind).

In general, for non-integer $x$, we usually extend the factorial as follows:

$$x!=\int_0^\infty t^xe^{-t}\ dt$$

for $x>-1$. Other forms may be given in the first link, and for your specific problem, many forms are given in the Wikipdia.

From here:

We have $$(1/4)! =\Gamma (5/4) =\Gamma (1/4)\frac {(4 (1)-3)!!!!}{4^1} =\Gamma (1/4)\frac {1}{4} \approx 0.90640$$

Also in general for any $x$, $$(x)! \neq \frac {(2x)!}{2} $$ Hope it helps.
