### quasi periodic continued fractions and powers of e, tanh, tan

It is well known that some transcendental numbers like e.g. rational multiples of $e^{2/n}$ with $n\in\mathbb N $, when written as regular continued fractions (R.C.F.), yield what can be called a ...

### Is it possile for all real algebraic numbers to have continued fractions with bounded partial quotients ?

Roth's theorem states that for every real algebraic $\alpha$ and $\epsilon>0$, there is a $c>0$ such that
$$|\alpha -\frac{p}{q}| > \frac{c}{q^{2+\epsilon}}.$$
Lang's conjecture strengthened ...
