Proving Transcendence [05/15/1999] How does one prove transcendence in a number? The Reality of e [7/26/1996] Does e exist outside of the classroom? Can I find it in nature? Solving the Equation x^y = y^x [12/09/2004] Solve x^y = y^x for x in terms of y only. Also, how do I find all possible solutions beyond the obvious ones of x = y, (2,4), and (4,2)? Transcendental numbers [11/17/1994] We just learned about e today and how it is similar to pi because it is irrational without a radical. Are there any other transcendental numbers, and if so, how are they used? Transcendental Numbers [5/31/1996] a=.110001000000000000000001..... Where is the next 1? Trisecting a Line [01/25/1998] Is it possible to trisect a line? (Using propositions 1-34, Book 1 of Euclid's elements.) What is e? A Ratio? [7/25/1996] Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Is there a similar explanation for e? Page: [
