Joshua Seaton 2011-12-30T02:39:41Z 2011-12-30T02:39:41Z <p>Last year, in a talk of Michel Waldschmidt's, I remember hearing a statement along the lines of the title of this question, that is, "The Galois group of $\pi$ is $\mathbb{Z}$.". In what sense/framework is this true? What was meant exactly - and can this notion be made precise?</p>
