### Connections of results in Harmonic analysis in the theory of Transcendental Numbers

An entire function $f$ is said to be of exponential type if there exist constants $c$ and $k$ such that $|f(z)|\leq c e^{k |z|}$.
A famous result of Polya says if $f$ is an entire function of ...

### Transcendence of the $p$-adic number $\sum_{n\ge0}a^{2^n}$

Let $p$ a prime number and $a\in\overline{\mathbb Q}\subset\mathbb C_p$ be an algebraic $p$-adic number such that $|a|_p<1$.
Is the number $s_a=\sum_{n\ge0}a^{2^n}$ transcendental over $\mathbb ...

### Transcendental Continued Fractions

Liouville famously showed the existence of a transcendental number by considering $\alpha =\sum\limits_{n=0}^\infty10^{-n!}$ and showing that it did not satisfy 'Liouville's criterion' $|\alpha-p/q|\...

### Irrationality or transcendence of $i^{i\Omega}$ and $2^\Omega$, with $\Omega=W(1)$ and $W(x)$ being the main branch of Lambert $W$ function

In this post we denote the main (or principal) branch of the Lambert $W$ function as $W(x)$, I add as reference that Wikipedia has the article Lambert $W$ function. The particular value $W(1)=\Omega$ ...

### $\mathbb{Z}$-linear independence of arguments of units in non-CM number fields

Playing a little bit with Groessencharacters a stumbled on the following question:
Let $K$ be a non CM number field with $r_1$ real embeddings and $2r_2>0$ complex embeddings. Set $r=r_1+r_2-1$ ...

### 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 ...

### Generalizations of Lüroth theorem

Let $k$ be an arbitrary field (I do not mind to take $k=\mathbb{C}$, if things are easier in this case).
A more general version of Lüroth theorem says that a field $L$, $k \subset L \subset k(x,y)$, ...
