Did you know? The Gelfond–Schneider theorem states if α is an algebraic number not equal to 0 or 1 and β is an irrational algebraic number, then A proof of this theorem is included in the chapter on transcendental numbers in the book A Course in Number Theory by H.E. Rose.

Did you know? This theorem is a resolution of part of the seventh of the mathematical problems famously proposed by David Hilbert in 1900.

Did you know? The theorem was first proved by Aleksandr Gelfond in 1934; Theodor Schneider refined the proof in 1935.

Did you know? If F is a subfield of E, a number α in E is said to be algebraic over F iff α is a root of a nonzero polynomial with coefficients in F; α is said to be transcendental over F iff it is not algebraic over F. The Gelfond–Schneider theorem is a result concerning complex transcendental numbers over the rationals.

Did you know? A complex number is a root of a polynomial with rational coefficients if and only if it is a root of a polynomial with integer coefficients. This is Gauß’s lemma.

Did you know? If R is an integral domain with field of fractions F, an element in some field containing F is a root of a polynomial with coefficients in F if and only if it is a root of a polynomial with coefficients in R. For if α is a root of where

Did you know? If F is a subfield of E, the elements of E which are algebraic over F form a subfield of E containing F.
