Transcendental Numbers
C L Siegel

TRIM 60This booklet reproduces with slight changes a course of lectures delivered in Princeton in 1946. The text deals with a few special transcendency problems of some interest, but it is more than a mere collection of scattered examples, since it involves a method which might be useful in the search of more general results.

1. The Exponential Function
2. Solutions of Linear Differential Equations
3. The Transcendency of ab for Irrational Algebraic b and Algebraic a ‡ 0, 1.
4. Elliptic Functions
