Title:A glimpse at Diophantine approximation of q-series
Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
Time and Date:4:00 pm, Thu, 17th Nov 2011
In this talk I attempt to explain a general approach in proving irrationality and linear independence results for q-hypergeometric series. An explicit Pade construction is introduced with some (quantitative) arithmetic implications for well-known q-mathematical constants.
