The author improves previously known results on the irrationality and the nonquadraticity measures of logarithms of suitable rational numbers. The previous record for the irrationality measure of log 2 was due to Rukhadze, who obtained in 1987 the upper bound 3.891...; here I obtain 3.574..., after more than twenty years of unsuccessful attempts of improving Rukhadze's record. As to nonquadraticity measures, a similar improvement, upon an earlier result by Hata in 2000, is obtained in this paper. Ideas from Sorokin, Hata and Rhin-Viola are combined.

Abstract

The author improves previously known results on the irrationality and the nonquadraticity measures of logarithms of suitable rational numbers. The previous record for the irrationality measure of log 2 was due to Rukhadze, who obtained in 1987 the upper bound 3.891...; here I obtain 3.574..., after more than twenty years of unsuccessful attempts of improving Rukhadze's record. As to nonquadraticity measures, a similar improvement, upon an earlier result by Hata in 2000, is obtained in this paper. Ideas from Sorokin, Hata and Rhin-Viola are combined.
