### Re: PSLQ and LLL?

I am quoting here for the sake of easier access tome.

#### Code:

```pslq[l_,dig_]:=Module[{a},
a=IdentityMatrix[Length[l]];
a=Append[a,10^dig*N[l,dig]];
a=Transpose[a];
a=Rationalize[a,10^-dig];
a=LatticeReduce[a];
Take[a,All,{1,Length[l]}]
];```

I will now do the next lines. Then we will have to find a Lattice Reduce function for Maxima.

Okay, work on them, I have to do a chore be back soon.

### Re: PSLQ and LLL?

I figured that out and tried writing a Maxima function, but it is not working:

#### Code:

`ratnum(a,dig) := round(float(a)*(10^dig))/10^dig;`

It doesn't. Or at least I don't know about it. My function returns good number for rationals but not reals.

One thing at a time. We need to stop right here.

What is e, I mean the symbol e? What can you tell me about it? Give me everything you got, it is important.

Nope!

e is the symbol for that. It was invented by Euler. e stands for

That little symbol has an infinite amount of digits. It represents a transcendental number. What does that mean?

### Re: PSLQ and LLL?

No, not exactly what we need here.

A transcendental number has some properties.

1) It is irrational ( can't be expressed in the reduced form a / b, where a,b are integers)

2) It is not the root of any polynomial (loose definition, you know the type of poly I mean).

So now asking M or M or M or M to evaluate
Rationalize[e] is just plumb kaboobly doo.

By rule 1 it is impossible. We can rationalize a truncated decimal approximation of e. Same thing with π. Those symbols are compact representations of something else.

It is wise that you skeddadled out of the forum because I feel a rant coming on.
