    4.503599627370496E15 seems to have something to do with preventing double overflows during an incomplete factorial calculation. If a calculated value is above 4.503599627370496E15, some magic is done to keep the values small. Unfortunately, my ability to read page after page of math code is quite limited, so I’ll give up at this point.
