Hi Jane;

I've seen this one. But maybe I didn't understand it. I thought b had to be irrational and algebraic.

Used to establish that the (gelfond schneider constant)

is transcendental.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

True,
has to be algebraic as well.

According to the theorem, the number

is transcendental!

Hi Jane;

Thats a stunner! I didn't think about that one. Thanks.

By the way that proof he presents is really tough.
