    Proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass Theorem

    I am wanting to find a good proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass Theorem. Most importantly I need the part that states that eα is transcendental where α ≠ 0 is algebraic. What are good online resources or books for the proof? Thank-you.

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    Thank you coolul007. It is a very interesting method.

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    it is either that or converting to base 10 then the other bases. In some cases the multiple choice answers we have to choose from are also of 2 different bases -.- And we'll only have 45 seconds to answer.

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    So the division algorithm does work for all bases, it is just a matter of familiarizing yourself with the multiplication tables of the other bases, correct?

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    Could you give an example of using that to convert between let's say, base 6 and base 4?

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    you didn't define the division algorithm...And using this, a will have to equal a non base-10 number to another non base-10 number of a different number system.

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    Yes; I know the general log rules. I am part of the Math Academic team at my school and we are having to convert, for example, 20123 to Base 6. The issue at hand is we, at most, have 45 seconds to do the calculations and guarantee they are correct. We are wondering if there is a way to do this...

    Converting between bases without base 10 mid-step

    I am currently trying to go between any two bases which are between and including base 2 to base 10. (i.e, base 10 to base 3, base 4 to base 6, etc...). Is there an equation or set of formulas for a one-step transition between the bases (or one-way method, rather than converting to base-10 then...
