Remarkable algebraic independence property of certain series related to continued fractions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We prove, using Mahler's method, the following results: Theorem 1 asserts that the series Θx,a,q) are algebraically independent for any distinct triplets (x,a,q) of nonzero algebraic numbers, where Θ (x,a,q) has the property shown in Corollary 1 that Θ (a,a,q) is expressed as a continued fraction. Theorem 2 asserts, under the weaker condition than that of Theorem 1, that the values Θ(x,1,q) are algebraically independent for any distinct pairs (x,q) of nonzero algebraic numbers. Typical examples of these results are generated by Fibonacci numbers.
