Abstract: We give an asymptotic expansion as $ M \to \infty ,\;N \to \infty $ of $ \prod {{{(m + n\tau )}^2}} $, where the product is over $ 1 \leqslant \vert m\vert \leqslant M,\;1 \leqslant \vert n\vert \leqslant N,(m,n) \ne (0,0)$. The formula is analogous to the classical Stirling expansion on $ M!$. Of special interest is the constant term in the expansion, which involves the Dedekind eta function $ \eta (z)$. Finding this constant is related to the Kronecker limit formula for the derivative at 0 of the zeta function $ Z(s) = \sum\nolimits_{m,n}'{\vert m + n\tau {\vert^{ - 2s}}} $. We consider instead the zeta function without absolute values.
