An Alternative Proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass Theorem
In December 1987 J. P. Bézivin and Ph. Robba found a new proof of the Lindemann-Weierstrass theorem as a by-product of their criterion of rationality for solutions of differential equations. Let us recall the Lindemann-Weierstrass theorem, to which we shall refer as LW from now on.
