started an entry algebraic number using text that Zoran had at algebraic number theory
Got locked.
I guess we have to wait then. Clearing the cache does not seem to solve this problem.
This bug is new, isn’t it? You have been reporting it a lot lately. Since when is this happening?
I noticed it maybe about month and half ago. Earlier locking could always be broken by force now some subclass of locking events results in the internal error page.
I added a bit about transcendental numbers.
In constructive mathematics, is a transcendental number a complex number $z\in\mathbb{C}$ that is not algebraic, or a complex number $z\in\mathbb{C}$ such that the complex norm of the difference between $z$ and every algebraic number $a\in\overline{\mathbb{Q}}\subseteq\mathbb{C}$ is positive ($\vert z - a \vert \gt 0$)?
I’m not sure if/where this is discussed in the literature, but it’s analogous to the situation with irrational (apart from all rational numbers) vs not rational. So I would say yes: Constructively, transcendental should mean apart from all algebraic numbers, and this is stronger than not being algebraic.
