Pure Maths Colloquium: Modular functions and transcendence problems
27 April 2009 16:15 in CM221
A short survey of classical results in transcendence theory will be given. We will discuss the theorem about transcendence degree of the field generated over rationals by values of Eisenstein series and exponential function at given point. As a corollary of this theorem we deduce for example the algebraic independence of pi and exp(pi). Some other corollaries and main ideas of the proof will be discussed.
