Is the Euler–Mascheroni constant an algebraic number?

Postby Guest » Sat Dec 05, 2020 11:37 pm

Is the Euler–Mascheroni constant ([tex]\gamma[/tex]) an algebraic number?

Hmm. Is 1. [tex]\gamma = \frac{\sqrt{z^{2} - 1}}{2}[/tex]?

Remark: We tentatively assume [tex]z[/tex] is an algebraic number where [tex]1.5 < z < 1.6[/tex].

We can apply Newton's Method to equation one and study its convergence with regards to [tex]\gamma[/tex].

Warning: This a difficult problem! We suspect there's much more to the true nature of the beast ([tex]z[/tex])... It may have deep secrets that are not easily discovered.

Important Reference Link:

"EULER’S CONSTANT: EULER’S WORK AND MODERN DEVELOPMENTS" by Professor J. C. Lagarias is an excellent/fruitful resource for answering our question (Is the Euler–Mascheroni constant ([tex]\gamma[/tex]) an algebraic number or a transcendental number?).

Source Link: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1303.1856.pdf.

Now we feel can confident we can crack our problem soon.

GOOD LUCK! :)

Go Blue! :D

How soon?

Hmm. We can crack this problem before April 15, 2021 (The 314th Birthday of the great one, Leonhard Euler).

Hmm. The number, 314, must be a lucky number for a number of reasons... :)

Valid Assumption (Convergent): 1. [tex]\gamma = \frac{\sqrt{z^{2} - 1}}{2}[/tex] where [tex]z[/tex] is the hypotenuse of a right triangle and [tex]x = 1[/tex] and [tex]y = 2 \gamma[/tex] are the legs of our right triangle.

We assume that [tex]\gamma[/tex] and [tex]z[/tex] are algebraic (rational) numbers.
