Digit Frequency Plot for Transcendental Numbers

An algebraic number is the solution of a polynomial equation over the integers. A transcendental number is a number that is not algebraic. There are countably many algebraic numbers and although there are uncountably many transcendental numbers, not many have been proved to be so. This Demonstration plots the frequency of the digits in a variety of bases and truncation lengths after the decimal of a selection of transcendental numbers: , , , , , (1).
