Real Numbers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We have used the philosophy of the problem being the solution to construct integer and rational numbers when dealing with equations of type a + x = b or a • x = b. But there are many other equations, especially dealing with approximations in music theory, that cannot be solved with Z or Q. In this chapter we apply the above philosophy to find solutions of such problems, namely the real numbers.
