    By generalizing the technique of Dresden [2], we prove a theorem which gives a sufficient condition for the transcendence of the numbers generated by certain integer sequences. In the last section, we consider the numbers generated by the last non-zero digits of nn, nnn,nnnn,etc. and the number...

We show how to compute the degree of a dominant rational morphism from...
