Exploiting my A-to-Z Archives: Transcendental Number


Today I’d like to share one of the essays from the Leap Day 2016 A-to-Z. (I did two A-to-Z sequences in 2016, which was exhilarating. It seems like too much work, but only in retrospect, especially as they were spaced by more than half a year.) The one to share is Transcendental Number, which I like because I go to share cool stuff about transcendental numbers. Particularly the paradox that fascinates me so. Basically every real number is transcendental. The exceptions are the numbers we ever do anything with. There are a handful of numbers that are interesting and that we know to be transcendental numbers. Not many, though. If that doesn’t fire your imagination, well, maybe try my essay. It might make the case more fully.
