The Transcendence of π

Manuel Eberl 🌐

September 28, 2018


This entry shows the transcendence of π based on the classic proof using the fundamental theorem of symmetric polynomials first given by von Lindemann in 1882, but the formalisation mostly follows the version by Niven. The proof reuses much of the machinery developed in the AFP entry on the transcendence of e.
