In this paper we give a general theorem on the linear independence measure of logarithms of rational numbers and, in particular, the linear independence measure of 1, log 2, log 3, log 5 and of 1, log 2, log 3, log 5, log 7. We also give a method to search for polynomials of smallest norm on a real interval [a,b] which may be suitable for computing or improving the linear independence measure of logarithms of rational numbers.

On the irrationality measure of log3
Abstract In this paper, we obtain a new estimate of an irrationality measure of the number log 3 . We have μ ( log 3 ) ≤ 5.1163051 with an “arithmetical method”. The previous results were μ ( log 3 )Expand

Upper bounds for the usual measures of totally positive algebraic integers with house less than 5.8
Previously, we established lower bounds for the usual measures (trace, length, Mahler measure) of totally positive algebraic integers, i.e., all of whose conjugates are positive real numbers. We usedExpand
On the smallest value of the maximal modulus of an algebraic integer
TLDR
The house of an algebraic integer of degree d is the largest modulus of its conjugates and Matveev's theorem on the lower bound of m(d) is improved, showing that, in this range, the conjecture of SchinzelZassenhaus is satisfied. Expand
The measure of totally positive algebraic integers
Abstract For a totally positive algebraic integer α ≠ 0 , 1 of degree d, we consider the set R of values of L ( α ) 1 / d = R ( α ) and the set L of values of M ( α ) 1 / d = Ω ( α ) , where L ( α )Expand

Abstract The house of an algebraic integer of degree d is the largest modulus of its conjugates. In this work, we compute the smallest houses m r ( d ) of all reciprocal algebraic integers for degreeExpand
The R _ 2 measure for totally positive algebraic integers V Flammang

Let a ∈ Q ∩ (0, 2], a = 1. Then the sequence of quantities 1 0 x n (1 − x) n (1 − (1 − a)x) n+1 dx ∈ Q log a + Q, produces 'good' rational approximations to log a. There are several ways of perfomingExpand
Integer transfinite diameter and polynomials with small Mahler measure
In this work, we show how suitable generalizations of the integer transfinite diameter of some compact sets in C give very good bounds for coefficients of polynomials with small Mahler measure. ByExpand
