Title: Transcendence of generalized Euler-Lehmer constants
Abstract of Talk
In this talk, I will discuss an infinite family of numbers involving Briggs-Euler-Lehmer constants, Euler’s constant and linear forms of logarithms of non-zero algebraic numbers. I will show that these infinite family of numbers are transcendental with at most one exception. This result generalizes a recent result of Murty and Zaytseva.
