RE: Irrationality of the MRB constant

Hi,

Such proofs can be extremely difficult. Recall, for example,

that the irrationality of the Euler-Mascheroni constant remains

an open problem! I think you should say likewise for MRB,

unless someone has actually written down a rigorous proof.

Hi Steve.

I’ve always accepted the MRB constant to be irrational. However, is there a "source" for that?

It is needed in the Wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MRB_constant.

Thank you!
