Transcendence of a fast converging series of rational numbers

    • Published online: 01 March 2001

Let a ∈ ℕ [setmn ] {0, 1} and let bn be a sequence of rational integers satisfying bn = O−2n) for every η ∈]0, 1[. We prove that the number S = [sum ]+∞n=0 1/(a2n + bn) is transcendental by using a special form of Mahler's transcendence method.
