# Fractional numbers' factorial [duplicate]

Is there a law or anyway to know the factorial of a fractional number, because as I see the law of factorization n! = n x (n-1) x (n-2) x ... x 3 x 2 x 1 isn't saying that the number should be an integer. If it does require an integer then shouldn't the law be [n]! = [n] x ([n]-1) x ([n]-2) x ...?
