On the irrationality of certain series

Paul Erdős and Ernst Gabor Straus

Vol. 55 (1974), No. 1, 85–92
Abstract

A criterion is established for the rationality of series of the form bn(a1,,an) where an,bn are integers, an 2 and limbn(an1an) = 0. This criterion is applied to prove irrationality and rational independence of certain special series of the above type.
