Algebraic number
An algebraic number is any complex number (including real numbers) that is a root of a non-zero polynomial (i.e., a value which causes the polynomial to equal 0) in one variable with rational coefficients (or equivalently – by clearing denominators – with integer coefficients). All integers and rational numbers are algebraic, as are all roots of integers. The same is not true for all real numbers or all complex numbers. Those real and complex numbers which are not algebraic are called transcendental numbers. They include π and e. Almost all complex numbers are transcendental.
