By Yann Bugeaud

Algebraic numbers can approximate and classify any actual quantity. right here, the writer gathers jointly effects approximately such approximations and classifications. Written for a extensive viewers, the ebook is obtainable and self-contained, with whole and exact proofs. ranging from persisted fractions and Khintchine's theorem, Bugeaud introduces a number of innovations, starting from particular structures to metric quantity conception, together with the speculation of Hausdorff size. So armed, the reader is resulted in such celebrated complicated effects because the evidence of Mahler's conjecture on S-numbers, the Jarnik–Besicovitch theorem, and the lifestyles of T-numbers. short attention is given either to the p-adic and the formal energy sequence situations. hence the e-book can be utilized for graduate classes on Diophantine approximation (some forty routines are supplied), or as an advent for non-experts. experts will take pleasure in the gathering of over 50 open difficulties and the wealthy and accomplished checklist of greater than six hundred references.
