Transcendental functions

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by Jpatt (Talk | contribs) at 07:12, 12 August 2010. It may differ significantly from current revision.

Transcendental functions are special functions used by mathematicians and engineers, such as trigonometric and logarithmic functions, whose values cannot be worked out from a simple algebraic expression - they can only be worked out from an infinite series - they transcend algebra.[1]
