Vectors of type II Hermite–Padé approximations and a new linear independence criterion
We propose a linear independence criterion, and outline an application of it. Down to its simplest case, it aims at solving this problem: given three real numbers, typically as special values ofExpand
On the Irrationality Measures of Certain Numbers. II
For the irrationalitymeasures of the numbers $$\sqrt {2k - 1} $$2k−1 arctan$$\left( {\sqrt {2k - 1} /\left( {k - 1} \right)} \right)$$(2k−1/(k−1)), where k is an even positive integer, upper boundsExpand
Multiple Legendre polynomials in diophantine approximation
We construct a class of multiple Legendre polynomials and prove that they satisfy an Apery-like recurrence. We give new upper bounds of the approximation measures of logarithms of rational numbers byExpand
Quadratic irrationality exponents of certain numbers
The paper presents upper estimates for the non-quadraticity measure of the numbers $\sqrt {2k + 1} \ln ((k + 1 - \sqrt {2k + 1} /k)$ and $\sqrt {2k - 1} arctg(\sqrt {2k - 1} /(k - 1))$, where k ∈ ℕ.Expand
Abstract Let 𝕂⊂ℂ be a number field. We show how to compute 𝕂-irrationality measures of a number ξ∉𝕂, and 𝕂-nonquadraticity measures of ξ if [𝕂(ξ):𝕂]>2. By applying the saddle point method to aExpand
Square exponent of irrationality of ln2
A new proof of the theorem on the non-quadraticity measure ln 2 is given in the paper.


A note on Beukers' integral
The aim of this note is to give a sharp lower bound for rational approximations to ζ(2) = π 2 /6 by using a specific Beukers' integral. Indeed, we will show that π 2 has an irrationality measure lessExpand
Rational approximations to the dilogarithm
The irrationality proof of the values of the dilogarithmic function L 2 (z) at rational points z = 1/k for every integer k ∈ (−∞, −5] ∪ [7, ∞) is given. To show this we develop the method ofExpand
A PL homotopy continuation method with the use of an odd map for the artificial level
This note presents a new piecewise linear homotopy continuation method for solving a system of nonlinear equations with the use of an odd map for the artificial level of the Homotopy. Expand
A Note on the Irrationality of ζ(2) and ζ(3)
At the “Journees Arithmetiques” held at Marseille-Luminy in June 1978, R. Apery confronted his audience with a miraculous proof for the irrationality of ζ(3) = l-3+ 2-3+ 3-3 + .... The proof wasExpand
