An Introduction to the History of Transcendental Numbers
is the title of a Maplebased talk I gave on May 6^{th} 2004 to the Dublin Branch of the Irish Mathematics Teachers Association. In my talk I covered only a small part of the very substantial Maple worksheet (along the lines of my Austria 2001 Fermat's little theorem talk) which I prepared for the occasion. The active mws file, with all outputs removed, is available here (343KB), the same file in zip format is available here (93KB), and the text only html version is available here (this is a large files with over 1000 gifs). A hard copy runs to 77 A4 printed pages. I have been asked about the possibility of a PDF version, but I don't have that facility; it is something I will have to investigate.

Cohen's homepage In April 2004 I sent an email to the Number Theory Mailing List in which I wrote "...I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone who offers courses  with web related material  on transcendental numbers (I'd like to make links to them). Does anyone teach any transcendence proofs at undergraduate level? I'd be very interested to know."
