We give qualitative and quantitative improvements on all the best pre- viously known irrationality results for dilogarithms of positive rational numbers. We obtain such improvements by applying our permutation group method to the diophantine study of double integrals of rational functions related to the diloga- rithm. 
NEW IRRATIONALITY RESULTS FOR DILOGARITHMS OF RATIONAL NUMBERS
A natural method to investigate diophantine properties of transcendental (or conjecturally transcendental) constants occurring in various mathematical contexts consists in the search for sequences ofExpand
Irrationality of certain numbers that contain values of the di- and trilogarithm
We prove that, for z ∈ {1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5}, at least one of the two numbers is irrational.
Hypergeometric approximations to polylogarithms
We present three applications of the hypergeometric method to the arithmetic study of polylogarithm values and, in particular, of zeta values. Part 1 is joint work with Khodabakhsh and TatianaExpand
Approximations to-, di-and tri-logarithms Wadim Zudilin
We propose hypergeometric constructions of simultaneous approximations to polylogarithms. These approximations suit for computing the values of polylogarithms and satisfy 4-term Apéry-likeExpand
IRRATIONALITY AND NONQUADRATICITY MEASURES FOR LOGARITHMS OF ALGEBRAIC NUMBERS
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
Sums of series of Rogers dilogarithm functions
Abstract Some sums of series of Rogers dilogarithm functions are established by Abel’s functional equation.

We propose hypergeometric constructions of simultaneous approximations to polylogarithms. These approximations suit for computing the values of polylogarithms and satisfy 4-term Apery-likeExpand
Recent Diophantine results on zeta values : a survey (Analytic number theory and related topics)
After the proof by R. Apéry of the irrationality of ζ(3) in 1976, a number of articles have been devoted to the study of Diophantine properties of values of the Riemann zeta function at positiveExpand
On a continued fraction expansion for Euler's constant
Recently, A. I. Aptekarev and his collaborators found a sequence of rational approximations to Euler's constant $\gamma$ defined by a third-order homogeneous linear recurrence. In this paper, we giveExpand
Linear Forms in Polylogarithms
Let $r, \,m$ be positive integers. Let $x$ be a rational number with $0 \le x <1$. Consider $\Phi_s(x,z) =\displaystyle\sum_{k=0}^{\infty}\frac{z^{k+1}}{{(k+x+1)}^s}$ the $s$-th Lerch function withExpand

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 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
The group structure for ζ(3)
1. Introduction. In his proof of the irrationality of ζ(3), Apéry [1] gave sequences of rational approximations to ζ(2) = π 2 /6 and to ζ(3) yielding the irrationality measures µ(ζ(2)) < 11.85078. ..Expand
